L.V.C. Gridders 
yarned to Little 
All' American 

Associated Press Writers 
Give Mention To 

A belated report indicates that two 
Lebanon Valley gridders were accord- 
ed Honorable Mention when the Lit- 
tle All-American football selection 
was released by the Associated Press 
during the Christmas holiday season. 
This selection is comparable to that 
of the many All-American team choic- 
es made by Sports' writers and mis- 
cellaneous groups at the close of the 
football season. Selection, however, is 
limited to players who have performed 
in the past season for smaller col- 
leges throughout the country. 

It was significant that no player 
from Penna. was given a place on the 
first three teams, but that a dozen or 
more were found in the list given hon- 
orable mention by the commentators. 
Several of this group had performed 
ably against the Dutchmen during the 
1941 grid season. 

The Blue and White men given hon- 
orable mention were Ralph Shay, sen- 
ior guard, and captain of the Valley 
gridiron machine during the past cam- 
paign and a veteran of four years ser- 
vice in the Dutchmen forward wall, 
and Tony Ventresca, freshman back 
who scored seven touchdowns for the 
Frockmen to be credited as the lead- 
ing point gainer for the Valley ites, 
and who was outstanding as climax 
runner and broken field ball-carrier 
during the season's schedule. 

President Lynch 
Reports Conclusions 
From Conferences 

Dr. Clyde A. Lynch presented to the 
Lebanon Valley students during this 
morning's chapel period the leading 
features revealed in the meetings he 
attended during the Christmas recess. 
These conferences were held in Bal- 
timore, Maryland, with the Lord Bal- 
timore Hotel as headquarters, from 
January 2 to 5, 1942. President Lynch 
attended sessions of the Association 
of American Colleges, the National 
Conference of University and College 
Presidents, and the annual meeting of 
the National Conference of Church- 
related Colleges. In his address to the 
students Dr. Lynch transmitted the 
views of the several nationally known 
speakers of note who spoke to those 
leaders convened in Baltimore. What 
these men had to say was of pertinent 
interest to every college student and 
specifically to those eligible for active 
service in the army or navy. 

Preceding talks given by Professor 
Miller and Ralph Shay concerning the 
Civil Defense organization at L. V. 
a sound movie was shown. This motion 
picture was the unrehearsed portrayal 
of London's response to a raid warn-

While work had been progressing 
previous to this time, the members of 
the cast were obliged to spend part 
of their vacation time learning parts. 
Since there is so little time remaining, 
they plan to put forth special and 
concentrated effort in order to make 
the play a success.

L. V. C. Receives 
Reply to Pledge 
Sent to Roosevelt 

Immediately following the morn- 
ing chapel period on December 9, 
1941, the students of Lebanon Valley 
will recall the patriotic ceremony in 
which ail took part. During the cere- 
mony occasioned by U. S. entrance into 
the war they watched the American 
flag reach its mast top above the cu- 
pola of the Administration Building 
mid a bright ray of sunlight while 
the band played the Star-Spangled 
Banner and saluted it. Dr. Clyde A. 
Lynch proposed that a telegram pledg- 
ing L. V. C.'s cooperation and loyalty 
be sent to the President of the United 
States. With the approval of both 
students and faculty this telegram was 
dispatched. The following is the re- 
ply which was received. 



December 10 } 1941 
My dear Dr. Lynch: 

Permit me j in the President's name 
to thank you, and everyone concerned, 
for your telegram. The pledges of pat- 
riotic support which have been re- 
ceived from the many, many loyal citi- 
zens in all parts of the country have 
given the President strength and cour- 
age to carry out the will of the Am- 
erican people. 

For the splendid assurance convey- 
ed in your message he is more ap- 
preciative than he can say. 

Very sincerely yours, 

Secretary to the President 

Campus Writers Hold 

New Years Meeting 

Meeting for the first time in 1942 
the penmates of the Green Blotter 
Club convened at the home of Dr. and 
Mrs. George G. Struble on Wednes- 
day, January 7. Following the read- 
ing of the individual contributions of 
the various members of the club crit- 
icism was forthcoming and the best 
work was selected for publishing in 
La Vie. 

Alfred Blessing, freshman, who was 
elected into the club at the December 
meeting was formally accepted into 
the group. Two vacancies in this 
class will not be filled until next year. 

College Unit 
For Defense 

Miller and Shay To Direct 
Preparations and Training 

Defense efforts at Lebanon Valley 
were initiated on Monday, December 
15, when nine student representatives 
met with a group of the faculty and 
the Lebanon County Defense Council. 
At this time the meeting, over which 
Mr. A. K. Mills presided as head of 
Annville's defense preparations, heard 
Major Harry Case and Mr. James At- 
kins outline the county's plans which 
are in accord with the national set-up. 

Immediate action was urged in or- 
der that appointments might be made 
before the Christmas vacation. Ralph 
Shay was unanimously named as stud- 
ent director by the college group 
which included Ruth Heminway, Mary 
Grace Light, Donald Bartley, Cyril 
Little, Robert Dresel, Margaretta 
Carey, Martha Davies and Walter Eb- 
ersole. Dr. Clyde A. Lynch, Dr. Hir- 
am H. Shenk, Dr. Clyde S. Stine and 
Professor Frederic Miller composed 
the faculty group. Professor Miller 
was selected to serve with Shay in di- 
recting this work. 

It was pointed out to the group that 
L. V. C. would serve as an individual 
and complete unit of the county but 
would be expected to cooperate with 
and help the Annville organization. 
Already there are jobs which they de- 
sire college students to fill. Certain 
of the committee such as the flying 
squadrons will serve any place they 
may be called.

L. V. C. Launches 
Annual Drive For 
World Friendship 

Next Monday > January 12, will 
mark the beginning of the annual 
World Friendship Drive which is 
sponsored by the Y. W. C. A., Y. M. 
C. A., and Life Work Recruits. Assist- 
ing Earl Reber who is chairman of 
the drive is Eleanor Witmeyer. To be- 
gin the campaign several speakers 
have been secured. 

On Thursday } January 8, Dr. S. G. 
Zeigler was on the Lebanon Valley 
campus. As an authority on missions 
he will explain the World Friendship 
plan. Supplementing his elucidation 
Miss Mary Mackenzie, missionary 
from Sierra Leone > will speak in 
chapel on Monday morning.

Wells To Lecture 
In Extended Chapel 

In an extended chapel period be- 
ginning at 8:55 a. m. tomorrow morn- 
ing, Carveth Wells, noted explorer, 
writer, and lecturer, will address the 
students and faculty of Lebanon Val- 
ley College. The 11:15 class will be 

This special speaker has been ob- 
tained by Dr. Lynch through a group 
in Harrisburg with which he is as- 
sociated and be tore whom Wells is 
appearing. It is stated that it is a 
rare privilege to hear this distin- 
guished authority and so every stud- 
ent should wish to attend. No person 
outside of college students and fac- 
ulty will be able to attend the lecture. 

Mr. Wells has a variety of worldly 
occupations to his credit. He has been 
a Professor of Engineering in London, 
a railroad builder in Canada, a survey- 
or in Indo-China, a soldier, a natural- 
ist, and a motion picture producer. 
For some time he has been a Fellow 
of the Royal Geographical Society, a 
recognition given for important ex- 
ploration. For six years he worked 
in the dense Malay Jungle surveying 
a railroad over which Great Britain it= 
now transporting Australian and In- 
dian troops to the border of Siam. 
This railroad is linked with the im- 
portant seaport of Singapore. He led 
two expeditions to Central Africa, one 
for the Chicago Geographic Society 
and one for the Milwaukee Museum.

Preparation • • . 

This is the season of the year when 
editorials should deal with New Year's 
resolutions, retrospection of the past 
year, or advice for tackling the year 
to come. However, we are told that 
this is to be a different kind of year, 
so we must keep up with the times. 

By this time the L. V. defense pro- 
gram under the direction of Ralph 
Shay and Professor Frederic Miller 
is known to all students. Leaders for 
the specific departments have been 
informed and organization is begun. 
What this program needs now is par- 
ticipation and cooperation from' every 

In this man's war the hardest thing 
is the sitting back, waiting, and feel- 
ing we are taking unnecessary precau- 
tions. I challenge you to find one per- 
son who doesn't prefer active accom- 
plishment. — So, we are asking you to 
tackle this hardest job. Jolt yourself 
to the realization that anything you 
are asked to do must take absolute 
precedence and that it is important. 
Ultimately every measure that we 
must take is for your specific good 
and so each request you refuse is one 
step further on your own life's tight- 

I saw a ten-year-old climb a tree 
the other day. When he reached the 
ground he soberly stated with a 
scratch of his head that that was a 
Victory Tree. Why? "Don't you see, 
the fork makes a 'v.' " In the next 
breath he solemnly stated, "I'd like 
to fight for my country 'cause it's 
worth savin'." 

This is not a pep-talk for you to 
dash off and take the shortest route 
to the front. It is a solemn and sin- 
cere request that you whole-heartedly 
support the defense program here at 
L. V. C. 

Editorial Questions 

What would statistics show con- 
cerning the number of men using the 
ne\v day student building? 

How many students know that La 
Vie Collegienne has been granted of- 
fices in the rear of the Conservatory 
annex ? 

Who realizes that the Lebanon Val- 
ley auxiliary is responsible for the 
new artistic furnishings in West Hall 
as well as those in other dormitories? 

I Resolve 

John Paul Hummel: I hereby re- 
solve not to cause any more dis- 
turbance than necessary when ar- 
riving at Professor Stokes' classes 
en retard. 

Howard Paine: I resolve to con- 
tinue doing what I was doing 12:01 
A.M^ January 1st — making noise 
and being with a blonde. 

Phoebe Geyer: To stop groaning 
when I hear radio commercials. 

David Shaner: Only one resolu- 
tion — that the yearbook comes out 
on time. 

Fredericka Lavcks: Never to go 
down for the ten of five bus until 
five because it's always fifteen 
minutes late anyhow. 

Marian M. Kreider: I resolve to 
finish writing up experiments and 
reports at least fifteen minutes be- 
fore class. 

Doris Carter: To take three 
inches off my waist and graft them 
on my head. 

Mary Jane Brown: New Year's 
Resolution— ???— What's that? 

Virginia Kent: I resolve to de- 
vote more time to the fellows while 
I can, for they may not be around 
next year. 

f From the Wings 

This first week back at school seems 
to be a rather "in between" time for 
dramatic activities on our campus. 
Although we have a play in produc- 
tion that sounds interesting, rehear- 
sals have just started and we can't 
say too much about the cast as yet. 
The play the juniors have chosen is 
"Through the Night"; its a different 
sort of a murder mystery in which the 
audience is in on the solution to the 
crime while the players flounder a- 
round in the dark. The story has that 
delightful mixture of humor and soph- 
istication that makes the best sort of 
entertainment. Incidentally, the play 
committee was left absolutely on its 
own to find a play, and we happen to 
know that for weeks they left few 
stones unturned to get the best pos- 
sible list of plays before making their 
choice. They even postponed the origi- 
nal date because they hadn't found 
the play, so we're expecting "Through 
the Night" to be tops. The date is to 
be near the twenty-first of this month 
if you want to start planning on it 
now. The exact night will be an- 
nounced later. Next week we'll tell 
you about the progress of the individ- 
ual actors. 

As the theatre plays an important 
role during our own holiday season, it 
has always been a part of the Christ- 
mas festivities in England. In spite 
of the torn up condition of the city 
this year, London still had three pan- 
tomimes, two fantasies and two 
straight plays running during Christ- 
mas week. Along with revues and bal- 
lets the number of theatres open was 
29! The pantomimes are especially 
popular at this season and people at- 
tend them in long lines. They are 
quite gorgeous spectacles that are 
very much a part of old English cus- 
tom. I can remember vivid tales of the 
pantomimes at Christmas that my 
grandmother attended when she was a 
child. The two fantasies being given 
were "A Midsummer Night's Dream" 
and "Peter Pan." These are both old 
avorites. The settings for "Peter Pan" 
were thirty odd years old when a bomb 
finished them but somebody had the 
faith to reequip the play and now 
there is an entirely new production of 
the old Barrie favorite! One of the 
two straight plays is a new war play 
and the other is "Little Women." 
There isn't really much in this list 
that is new and different, but rather 
it is made up of old favorites that re- 
mind people of a happier, more secure 
past. By realizing and meeting these 
desires, the theatre is serving an es- 
sential purpose ! 

SeoriSE Washington 






Cadets at 
the citadel 





The holly-daze at home was so wonderful that I'm having a hard time 
getting back into the rut around here. But just give me a few more days of 
cold-toast-nibbling-at-seven-ayem, and everything will be honky tonky again. 

West Hall came back on crutches — or practically — with Pete and Bushy 
leading the Miss Haps. They're camouflaging their ankles — something like 
a strained ligament me thinks. And Zimmy with her sinuses — Leiny with 
her aches — oh my! And Hazel contributed to the cause the other night by 
dragging in a pair of frozen feet — these places should be better heated! 

It's so terribly cold right now that the hair on Dr. Light's dog broke 
when he stroked him this morning. Even Polly Keller's beginning to feel 
it — she's actually wearing a ccat this week. And Davy's sporting a pair 
of those nice warm lisle stockings, but, of course, her chief motive is de- 

The men at the post office gave Stabley a Christmas present — two knit- 
ted lil' dolls. Don't you think that was a nice jesture ? All they give me is 
a scowl when I make my fifth trip post-ward everyday. I've been trying 
to figure something else out — Waller got a Hulten and Mateyak street car 
for Xmas. Unless it's a new make, I don't get it. 

Since the basketball team can't go to Clio, those poor girls are in a 
bad way. I heard one of them giving forth the other day with something 
that sounded like: 

Freshman, Junior, 
Senior, Soph, 
Young assistant, 
Or wrinkled prof, 

God, send me something wearing pants 
To take me to Clio's dance. 

I can't think of much else to tell you — except that Shay ran into BOTH 
sides of the SAME bridge somewhere in Connecticut. These supermen are 
never satisfied! 

Don't you think it would be nice for the guys to give their Clio — corsage- 
money to the Red Cross? We really haven't done a thing along that line yet! 
I know the girls wouldn't squawk — now if the boys would only co-operate? ? ? 

Well, goodbye now! I'm going to study like mad for the rest of the 
semester. Those exams aren't going to catch me. 

Your loving, 


P. S. Some bird informed me today that unless class dues are paid, 
out I go. Could you send me fifteen bucks ? — or would you rather have me 
home for a few days?

(With deep and sincere apologi es 
our freshman friend) 
By Bobo 

I was never aware, 

Nor did I much care 

To know the whereofs or wher 

Of the highly amusing, 

But greatly confusing, 

Amazing ) dear Mr. Latz. 

Until one fine day 

While dreaming away 

In a class that was boring and d 

I heard a remark ' 

With a good deal of spark, 

And I looked for the who and the why 

Then to my surpirise 
The "who" met my eyes 
In the form of my dear Mr. Latz 
And the "why" was for him 
An abundance of vim 
Which came forth in seme wonderfu] 

His wit is as dried 

As a tear never cried 

And as wrinkled as a seedy old raisin 

But it suits to a "T" 

Just what he looks to be 

For, indeed, it is often quite brazen 

But of all of the folks 

Whom I've known to crack jokes 

From beggars to fine plutocrats, 

There is no one I know 

Who is able to show 

Better humor than dear Mr. Latz. 

Ncw ; my studies are still 

A bit hard on my will, 

But I don't get much chance to be blue 

In a few of my classes 

Where dear Latz his time passes, 

For I never know what he will do. 

To some kids he may seem 
Slightly off of his beam, 
But to this I can never agree, 
For, one seldom will find 
Such a man with a mind 
As sharp and as keen as he. 

Professors or teachers, 
Musicians or preachers, 
Bricklayers or diplomats — 
There isn't a one 
Who is half as much fun 
As the man I am praising, 
The laughable, dazing, 


The queerest of choosing, 
Amazing dear Mr. Latz. 

'You Gotta Get Up' 
Has No Kick; Henry 
King Urges Change 

Uncle Sam could strengthen the 
morale of his soldiers by taking some 
of the curse out of that 'ol' debil' Rev-

King's idea is to streamline that 


jarring, early morning bugle c 
which summons army men from soft)

Tough Half Hour 
"Soldier sailor or civilian, whether 
' ii • 'You 

it's a bugle or a clock that yells-

is the toughest in any man's norm 
life," he remarked as he gave JjJ 
band a breather in rehearsal for

by The Coca-Cola Company, on w 

his band appeared December 9.

It's been quite some time since this writer has been given space to make 
jug own personal comments on Blue and White athletic events and we are 
o-lad to take this opportunity to return to active service. 
" it is noted that the Day Student Congress has continued its practice 
f other years in starting its Inter-mural basketball season at the close of 
t j, e Thanksgiving vacation. This year the Day Students have begun a Volley 
pall League in addition to the Basketball League. Play is coming along fine 
according to reports from that front. With the selection of teams by six 
ca ptains, who were appointed some time ago, many more fellows have the 
opportunity to participate. In other years four class teams made up the 
^ster of the League and many men saw action in only a limited number of 

The Botch Bros., led by the indomitable "Captain" Uhrich are leading 
the league at present with two wins to the credit against no losses in com- 
petition. Uhrich, Yoder and Hummel are the top-notch performers who are 
endeavoring to keep their slate clean. The Green Hornets, Indians and Tig- 
erS are in a three-way tie for second place which will be broken by this 
week's play. The Green Hornets led by Shay and Hoerner will attempt to 
dethrone the Botch Bros, this week and tie the latter teams for the top 
in the league. Ted Youse leads the list of individual scorers with 44 
points in two games played. 

The Mighty Atoms top the Volley Ball League with three wins and no 
defeats. The Botch Bros, are close behind with two victories and one loss. 
The Green Hornets stay in the upper bracket with a .500 percentage after 
two meetings with opponents. 

The varsity basketball team opened play with Eastern Pennsylvania Col- 
legiate opponents last evening when the Ursinus Bears acted hosts to the 
Blue and White court squad in Collegeville. As noted elsewhere in this sheet, 
the Dutchmen had dipped their colors in a non-league game in December to 
the Gettysburg Bullets at York at a charity game. In the first league game 
played last month, the Bucknell Bisons had fallen before the Albright 
Collegians in Reading by a score of 57-43 as the Lions scored at will. 

Though this news may appear a bit of ancient history, it was encour- 
aging to note that Lebanon Valley College was not forgotten when a duo

Dutchmen Tossers 
Meet F & M Quintet 

Coach Mike Intrieri will unveil his 
1942 edition of the Flying Dutchmen 
for home view this Saturday night 
when the Blue and White meet up with 
Sholar Bair's fast-moving Franklin 
and Marshall Diplomats on the Leba- 
non High School Gymnasium. 

Only slight hit by graduation the 
Diplomats will present a fast break- 
ing team based on the type which 
dominated the Eastern Intercollegiate 
league for the past few years. Aside 
from the remains of last year's team 
Bair also had a good crop of second 
year men to choose from and it is re- 
ported that the reserve strength of the 
Diplomats is exceptionally strong this 

For the Dutchmen, Captain Ralph 
Mease will man the one forward spot 
assisted by either George Smith or 
George Meyer who has been showing 
up well in recent practices and who 
might get the call over his more ex- 
perienced teammate. 

The center spot will be held by the 
veteran Steve Kubisen playing his 
fourth year of ball for L. V. Barring 
a recurrence of recent injuries Big 
Don Staley will line up in the back 
court with Harry Matala. Staley is an 
uncertain starter due to a recent in- 
jury sustained in practice. For re- 
serve strength Coach Intrieri will 
choose from Gollam, C. Miller, Car- 
baugh, Dorazio, H. Miller, Neidig and 
Bob Heim. 

In the opener Jerry Frock's Frosh 
team will meet the Diplomat Frosh. 
This year it is reported that Blue and 
White Frosh will play a faster game 
than teams of former years. Prob- 
able starters for the first year men are 
Ventresca and Maley in the forward 
court, Hangen at center and Beck and 
possibly Bcshore at the guard spots.

Graduates At 
Randolph Field 

Randolph Field, Texas, Dec. — Grad- 
uating its ninth and last class of Avi- 
ation Cadets for 1941 on December 
12, Randolph Field completes its sec- 
ond year as pace setter for the great- 
est expansion in Air Corps history. 

In this class, 254 student pilots, re- 
presents 37 states and Canada; 135 
colleges and universities, and one Leb- 
anon Valley man is among them. He 
is William R. Habbyshaw, Hummels- 
town, 1937-39. 

L. V. C. remembers "Red" Habby- 
shaw as the president of his class dur- 
ing his sophomore year and as a mem- 
ber of the C. M. T. C. He was an ac- 
tive member of Kalo and a commuting 
student in the Business Administra- 
tion department. 

Canada's representative, Aviation 
Cadet David C. Howard, Kitchener, 
Ontario, was born in Akron, Ohio, 
and is an American citizen, but has 
spent most of his life in the Canadian 

Ending the primary phase of their 
thirty-week course on October 1, these 
men had completed ten weeks of in- 
tensive flying training at civilian op- 
erated elementary schools where they 
mastered the fundamentals of flying 
in rugged, low powered airplanes. 
Sixty-five hours aloft were logged in 
this type of craft. 

Moving on to Randolph Field, the 
transition to the Air Corps' speedy, 
450 horsepower basic trainer was 
made and 70 additional hours were 
listed in their log books. 

Night flying aerial acrobatics cross 
country, instrument and formation fly- 
ing — all were included in this second- 
ary, or basic, ten-week period. Ground 
school subjects — radio code, weather, 
engine maintenance and military law 
have added to their skill as future 

On December 12 these Cadets will 
complete Randolph's basic training 

Basketball Recruits 
Start Girls 9 Season 

The first call for girls' basketball 
recruits was sent out a week before 
Christmas vacation. According to the 
number present at the first practice, 
the call must have reached only a 
few upperclassmen. Pete Geyer, Jane 
Stabley and Bobbie Herr represented 
the seniors; Betty Johns, basketball 
leader, Polly Keller and Nicky Whit- 
meyer composed the junior aggrega- 
tion, while the sophomore contingent 
included Garneta Seavers, Martha 
Wilt, Ruth Haverstock, Ginnie Bern- 
hard, Micky Ehrlich. If you've bother- 
ed to count, you'll find that the aver- 
age for each of the three upperclasses 
is less than four. This number suffers 
by comparison with the frosh gals, 
nineteen of whom answered the call! 
They are: Stonecipher, Brandt, Lein- 
inger, Spangler, Zimmerman, Bush, 
Fisher, Allen, Higby, Heister, D. and 
B. Moyer, Bomgardner, Carper, Miller, 
Day, Raab, Campbell and Waller. By 
all appearances, this season may wit- 
ness a strong frosh team. Unless 
more upperclassmen make an appear- 
ance, the first year crowd will have 
to be used as a reservoir from which 
to draw honor squad players, so — get 
on your toes you veterans! 

Basketball leader Johns submitted 
a schedule which is as yet tentative. 
The only definite dates are March 6, 
when L. V. girls will met the team 
from St. Johns University of Life, 
and March 28, the date of the annual 
Play Day. In addition to these games, 
the honor squad will compete twice 
with Albright, probably in February, 
with one game being played on each 
team's home court. The game with 
Elizabethtown co-eds will be played 
during the month of March. 

The daily schedules of practice will 
be posted on the bulletin board. Miss 
Henderson will welcome any new re- 
cruits that may feel the urge to ap-

Day Students Keep 
Basketballs Moving 
In M. D. S. League 

Play in the Men's Day Student Bas- 
ketball League has progressed in a 
fine manner due to the tutelage of 
"Mike" Intrieri. Clean ball playing 
and sportsmanship have dominated 
the closely-fought battles which occur 
during the noon hour on Mondays, 
Wednesdays and Fridays. 

Volley ball games are held between 
the halves of the feature game in or- 
der to keep both leagues operating si- 
multaneously. This game was prac- 
tically unknown on the campus before 
this league was started. 

The Botch Brothers kept their slate 
clean by downing the Mighty Atoms in 
a nip and tuck battle in which Hum- 
mel led the victors with five double- 
deckers as they eked out a 22 to 21 

"Bud" Boltz led his Tigers in a 29- 
17 victory over the Midgets with sev- 
enteen points while Adelstein copped 
eight for the losers. 

The Mighty Atoms broke into the 
win column by downing "Lefty" Lit- 
tle's Indians 35 to 25 as "Sid" Baes- 
hore looped five shots through the 

"Ted" Youse outscored the Green 
Hornets himself as he racked up twen- 
ty-nine points to lead his "Midgets"

schedule and will be ready for the fi- 
nal ten weeks at specialized Air 
Corps schools. 

There they will learn to fly faster, 
more powerful airplanes. Cross-coun- 
try hops of greater distances, either 
solo or in formation, will be accom- 
plished. Night navigation flights will 
be stressed. There they will prove that 
they have retained their aerial lessons 
of primary and basic flying training.

The "West Point of the Air" has 
been the rallying point for the reali- 
zation of the Air Forces' schedule that 
calls for 30,000 trained military pilots 
each year. Its 550 officers and 3,500 
enlisted mechanics have been the nu 
cleus for what is now the Gulf Coast 
Air Corps Training Center that oper 
ates 31 flying training schools from 
its headquarters at Randolph Field. 

Forty-five hundred Aviation Cadets 
receive their basic flying training at 
the famed Air Corps school annually 
New classes are assigned every five 
weeks and as they report, the upper 
class transfers to advanced or spe- 
cialized schools. 

During the thirty-week training pe 
riod, Aviation Cadets are paid $75 
monthly, plus food, clothing, quarters, 
medical and dental care. After com- 
pleting the course, pay jumps to $205 
plus quarters, or $245 if quarters are 
not provided.

distributed to every student. In addi- 
tion to answering the questions on 
these, the students were asked to re- 
ply to the following questions: 

Do you favor the advancement of 
the commencement date to June first, 
which would necessitate the elimina- 
tion of the Easter vacation except 
Good Friday, and the shortening of 
both examination periods? 

Would you be interested in enroll- 
ing in accelerated courses beginning 
with summer school?

Civilian Pilots 
Training Continues 

From present information it ap- 
pears that the Civilian Pilot Train- 
ing program will not be discontinued 
as a result of the war emergency. 
Lebanon Valley College has had four 
groups of C. P. T. trainees during the 
six periods that the program has been 
in operation. We are not assigned a 
group in September because we were 
unable to fill completely the quota of 
ten in February preceding and be- 
cause we had little prospect of doing 
so at the opening of the school year in 
September due to a very apparent lack 
of interest on the part of our students 
in the project. The Civil Aeronautics 
Administration takes the position that 
since the demand for this training is 
very heavy in certain areas it is pro- 
per that they should assign the quotas 
to the points where they will be com- 
pletely filled. It is quite likely, as a 
consequence of our earlier experience, 
that we would again be assigned a 
quota of ten } if there were assurance 
that we could supply the ten boys who 
could meet the physical requirements. 
It is therefore, urged that all men 
students who are interested in this 
type of training report during the 
next few days to the Registrar for a 
conference on the likelihood of their 
being able to meet the physical re- 
quirements of age, height and weight, 
together with a preliminary physical 

Our four programs have included 
34 men and 2 women. Our first class is 
distributed at this writing as follows: 
Two are commissioned officers in the 
United States Naval Reserve, two in 
the U. S. Army and Air Corps; one 
is in training with the Army Air 
Corps and one with the U. S. Navy; 
one is a commercial pilot; and 3 are 
engaged in civilian pursuits. The 
more recent classes will doubtless 
achieve about the same distribution. 
Are you interested? 

Illness Prevents Miss Wood 
From Returning To Campus 

Miss Margaret A. Wood, instructor 
in political science and hygiene and 
proctor of South Hall, has been un- 
able to return to her duties after the 
Christmas vacation because of ill 
health. Having been granted indefi- 
nite leave of absence, she is now rest- 
ing in order to gain strength for an 

Miss Wood's class of Business Ad- 
ministration 93 and her extension 
class have been taken by Dr. Stokes. 
Mr. Intrieri will teach the men's hy- 
giene class, while Miss Henderson will 
have the women's hygiene class. The 
problem of the supervision of South 
Hall is yet to be decided.

Youngsters Know 
Music«Jan Garber 

The average American youngster 
today knows more about music, orches- 
tras and arrangements than any prev- 
ious younger generation ever did. 

This positive statement is made by 
Jan Garber, who after touring with 
orchestras for more than 25 years, 
should be in a position to make a pos- 
itive statement. 

"Call 'em swing fans, jitterbugs, 
hep-cats — or what you will," says 
Jan, who brings his orchestra to the 
"Spotlight Bands" program, sponsored 
by Coca-Cola, over 119 stations of the 
Mutual Broadcasting System at 10:15 
P.M., EST, on January 7. 

"The fact remains that kids today, 
boys and girls, know more about or- 
chestras, their styles and what makes 
'em tick than most professional musi- 
cians. They listen to radio programs. 
They play records continually. They 
crowd into ballrooms, herd about the 
podium and analyze every organiza- 
tion they hear. They may not know 
technical terms, but they do know 

Know Their Stuff 

"Their questions prove their know- 
ledge. An orchestra director gets few 
silly queries nowadays. The boys and 
girls have definite reasons for asking 
why there are two pianos, three 
trumpets- — or whatever the particular 
arrangement calls for — and why the 
instruments are grouped as they are. 
And occasionally, they'll come up with 
some very bright suggestions. The or- 
chestra leader who doesn't listen to 
them has much to learn." 

Jan, who knows a thing or two a- 
bout popular music himself, was ask- 
ed, "If you could hear only twelve 
more popular musical numbers in 
your life, which would you choose?" 

The question was answered with 
comparative alacrity. Garber selected 
the first six tunes without even a re- 
freshing pause for breath. 

Takes "Stardust" 

Topping the list was Hoagy Car- 
mi chael's "Stardust." Number two 
spot went to "Temptation" while 
third choice was Jerome Kern's 
"Who." Fourth position unquestion- 
ably went to "12th Street Rag." Fifth 
and sixth spots were given "Song of 
India" and the ever-popular "Hindus- 

From there on the selections got 
harder. After a considerable delibera- 
tion, Garber chose "Make Believe" as 
tune number seven and "Where or 
When" in the eighth slot. "The Conti- 
nental" was picked for number nine 
and the perennial "Tea for Two" was 
happily selected for the tenth position. 

Garber found difficulty choosing be- 
tween "The Girl Friend" and "All 
Alone" for his 11 and 12 selections 
and finally named them both on the 
condition he be entitled to a baker's 

For the last number he ever wished 
to hear, he unhesitatingly picked 
Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata."

Annual Drive

colleges throughout the United States. 
That college raising the largest sum 
is entitled to send a student as mis- 
sionary to the Albert Academy at 
Sierra Leone, Africa. This teacher's 
expenses are paid from the amount 
gathered during the campaigns on all 
of the campuses. Chester Goodman, 
an L. V. C. graduate, is one who has 
been given the privilege of serving in 
this capacity. 

Students are urged to contribute 
liberally to this fund in order that we 
may send a representative, to prove 
our support as compared with that of 
the other schools, and to exhibit the 
truly international feeling of good 
will which exists. 



To begin with, it would be a good 
idea to preface all the remarks that 
follow with an expression of admira- 
tion for the Y cabinets and the Life 
Work Recruits who many times find 
themselves dealing with a mere hand- 
ful of their schoolmates, yet who keep 
right in there "plugging" to give these 
few their best in the way of inspira- 
tional programs. Their job is certain- 
ly one which invokes little gratitude 
in the way of encouraging results and 

There is a group of individuals on 
this campus who feel that the compul- 
sory chapel attendance demands too 
much religious observance in itself. 
This group, were we to examine its 
personnel, would reveal among its 
membership the chronic complainer, 
the person who thinks it "smart" to 
thwart religion, and the person who 
has never been educated into church 
mindedness. To the first two classes 
mentioned, those who actually know 
better, our word is, "Stop and think 
a bit." We sympathetically advise the 
third class to try enjoying the reli- 
gious services of the campus with a 
sincere desire to get some inspiration 
from them. In due time they will find 
themselves getting spiritual returns 
from their efforts, if they have been 
sincerely put forth. 

It is the remaining group, the ap- 
parently few in number who seek 
more minutes spent in worship than 
that afforded by the daily chapel pro- 
gram which is reached by the religious 
organizations. There is offered for 
these students the Vesper Service at 
6:00 p.m. every Sunday and the Quiet 
Hour at 7:00 p.m. every Wednesday. 
The programs are very simple, yet 
well planned, as even the worshipper 
who has no part in the sponsoring or- 
ganization will readily observe. 

Some few years ago, you will re- 
member, several magazine articles ap- 
peared in which outstanding men gave 
their reasons for attending or for not 
attending church. Since their discus- 
sions practically served to exhaust the 
subject, we can not hope to supple- 
ment these articles; nevertheless we 
might find it convenient to repeat 
them on a few points in an endeavor to 
show you why you should attend the 
services on our campus. One of course 
realizes these programs would not be 
given so much attention by a group 
of students if they did not feel that 
they were offering something very 

It is a sure thing that all of us 
waste at least two half hours during 
the course of a week which we could 
be spending profitably attending these 
services that have been mentioned 
above. No doubt many have felt the 
desire to attend but have failed to see 
how they could spare the time; this 
has been due to a failure to plan their 
week's schedule to include the worship 

Women Form G. S. O. 

Group On Campus 

Before the Christmas vacation the 
women boarding students were organ- 
ized as a Girls' Service Order Unit, a 
branch of the U. S. O. Under the 
leadership of Ruth Heminway all of 
the women were asked to consider 
joining such a group. She acted in 
accordance with directions given by 
Miss Helen Cunliffe, who is in charge 
of the Womens' Service Club of Leb- 
anon County. 

Miss Cunliffe, who is living in Ann- 
ville, advised the girls that they 
might join any one of five specific 
committees. In addition to this the 
girls will attend social functions at 
the Lebanon U. S. O. building. These 
parties will include only Lebanon Val- 
ley girls and will be held on Friday or 
Saturday nights. 

The forms for joining the G. S. O. 
should be given to Ruth Heminway 
before January 9. 

Wells To Lecture 
In Extended Chapel 

Continued from Page 1 

Mr. Wells is well known for his ra- 
dio discussions on a wide variety of 
subjects. He is the author of a dozen 
books. His most recent book, entitled 
"North of Singapore," was the Decem- 
ber selection of the National Travel 
Club last year. His "In Coldest Afri- 
ca" and "Six Years in the Malay Jun- 
gle" are also renowned. His "Kapoot" 
was one of the first exposes of the 
conditions of central Russia under the 
Communistic rule, and it aroused a 
storm of protest from communistic 
sympathizers in the United States. 

Mr. Wells was in the Malay Jungle 
when the present war broke out and 
returned to America by way of the 
Suez Canal and North Africa. He 
spent last summer visiting the new 
American bases secured in the Car- 
ibbean Islands from Great Britain.

College Year 

Faculty And Students 
Agree In Curtailment 

At the faculty meeting of January 
13 1942, a revised program to meet 
the exigencies of the present situation 

s determined. It is in harmony 
with the recommendations of the As- 
sociation of American Colleges and 
the votes cast by the Lebanon Valley 
student body in the chapel poll of Jan- 
uary 8. A shortened college year will 
enable the commencement date to be 
June 1. 

The groups of faculty members de- 
cided that there would be a shortened 
Easter vacation lasting from Thurs- 
day night, April 2, until Tuesday 8:00, 
April 7. The mid-year examination 
period will be confined to the first 
week of February but those professors 
so desiring may give their examina- 
tion in the preceding regular class 
periods. In the second semester fre- 
quent testing will eliminate a final 
examination period. 

In accordance with demands for ex- 
tended summer school work, the open- 
ing date of summer sessions will be 
June 2. There will be three registra- 
tion dates, June 2, 22 and August 3. 
Any student may enroll for three to 
twelve hours of work. 

Certified high school students are 
to be admitted into Lebanon Valley's 
second semester which begins Febru- 
ary 9, 1942 while others may begin in 
summer school. Their individual rec- 
ord is to determine whether they will 
be admitted by sufficient credits but 
with less than the usual time spent 
in high school. 

Such a program will enable students 
to take additional hours, night and ex- 
tension work in both the college and 
conservatory. However, the integrity 
°f the degree will be preserved and 
those so desiring may follow the four- 
year course of study. 

^ was pointed out that credit will 
^ e given, not to exceed one semester, 
for those inducted into military ser- 
vic e before the end of the year if the 
*ork of preceding years is satisfac- 
' 0l 'y- Others will be given a compre- 
ssive examination to determine 
thei r status. 

The advance school schedule for 
he school year of 1942-1943 has been 
proved as follows: 

September 14, 1942— Opening date. 
Thanksgiving holiday. (A 
lJj n ksgiving banquet in the dining 
will replace the Annual Christ- 

,as banquet).

Clionians Await 
Anniversary Dance 

The evening of Saturday, January 
17, will find Clio girls and their es- 
corts wending their way to the Hotel 
Hershey for their Annual Anniver- 
sary Dance which will feature the 
music of Frank Taylor and his Tay- 
lor-Made Rhythm. Appearing with 
the orchestra as vocalist will be Betty 
Brinton. Taylor's orchestra appeared 
before an L. V. C. audience before 
when it furnished the melodies for 
Delphian's 1941 anniversary. 

Faculty members appointed to act as 
chaperones include Dr. and Mrs. 
Lynch, Prof, and Mrs. Rutledge and 
Prof, and Mrs. Miller. 

Plans have been completed for the 
formal through the cooperation of 
the committees with the Anniversary 
President, Rae Sechrist. 

The committee chairwomen for the 
yearly celebration include Marguerite 
Martin, place; Margaret Cox, favors; 
Ruth Heminway, alumnae; Victoria 
Turco, transportation; Mildred Cross, 
orchestra; Betty Foster, programs; 
Mary Louise Clark, chaperones, and 
Ruth Wix, date. 

This is the first of the literary so- 
cieties dances. Formerly it was held 
earlier in the year but the late date 
of registration and long rushing per- 
iod are responsible for the change.

Chemists View 
Film of Discoveries 

On Tuesday evening, January 13, 
the Chemistry club held its first 
meeting of the new year. Russel Horst, 
the president, gave a few reports on 
the news in the field of Chemistry. 
After this a sound motion picture was 
shown entitled "On To Jupiter." This 
film gave a preview of a few of the 
many startling discoveries yet to be 
perfected and later to be universally 
used. Another film was to have been 
on the program, but it failed to arrive 
on time. Before the meeting was ad- 
journed, the president gave a brief 
summary of the trip to Baltimore and 
Washington, taken December 12 and 
13, by a large number of the members 
of the club. 

Carveth Wells 
Talks on War 

On January 9, in an extended cha- 
pel period, the student body and fac- 
ulty of Lebanon Valley College were 
privileged to listen to a most interest- 
ing address by Carveth Wells, famed 
as an explorer, water, and lecturer. 
His ability as a great lecturer was un- 
questioned at the close of his deliver- 

An an introduction to his lecture, 
Mr. Wells touched on his life story 
in a manner which was thoroughly en- 
joyed by all who heard him. Combin- 
ing frankness and wit, he related how 
he had launched on the career of lec- 
turer. As he was walking along the 
street one day, he noticed a sign which 
read, "Audubon Club Meeting — Ad- 
mission Free." Attracted by the price 
of admission, he entered the meeting 
where the robin was being discussed. 
Mr. Wells, familiar with the smaller 
robin of England, questioned the 
speaker's identification of the stuffed 
bird he was holding in his hand, and 
the two entered into a steady flow of 
"it is" — "it isn't" until the speaker 
admitted that the robin is in reality a 
thrush, but is generally referred to 
by the name given it by the Pilgrim

Chapel Initiates 
Student Project For 
World Friendship 

The annual Student World Friend- 
ship Project was officially begun at 
Lebanon Valley College last Wednes- 
day during the regular chapel period. 
The Student Christian Associations on 
campus were in charge of the pro- 
gram. Phoebe Geyer, President of 
the Y. W. C. A., read the Scriptures 
and David Gockley, Y. M. C. A. Pres- 
ident, delivered an address. Earl 
Reber, a senior, is in charge of the 

Each year the student body is asked 
to support the drive by contributions 
of money. The project this year is 
unique in that there will be displayed 
on the bulletin board in the Ad 
building a large map of Africa 
which will be blocked into sec- 
tions. As each individual pays his re- 
muneration, his section on the map 
will be so designated. 

In past years Lebanon Valley has 
combined with Otterbein, Indiana Cen- 
tral, York and Shenandoah Colleges, 
and Bonebrake Seminary in support- 
ing the World Friendship Project. The 
project was begun in 1927 when the 
students of these colleges and semin- 
ary contributed a fund for the support 
of Albert Academy, a secondary school 
for boys at Freetown, West Africa. 
Three years later the students decided 
to change the plan and raise a fund 
large enough to support a student 
representative selected from the stu- 
dent body of one of the colleges or 
seminary, to go to Africa to teach for 
a term of two years. The amount 
needed is $1,000 divided as follows: — 
Salary, $750; transportation, $250. 
The project is administered through 
the Foreign Missionary Society of the 
United Brethren Church, 409 U. B. 
Building, Dayton, Ohio.

College Symphony 
In Annual Concert 

The Lebanon Valley College Sym- 
phony Orchestra will present a con- 
cert Friday evening, January 23rd, at 
8 P. M., in Engle Hall. The orchestra, 
under the direction of Professor E. 
P. Rutledge, will present a very in- 
teresting program. In addition to 
their numbers, the group is pr#sent- 
ing two solo'sts, Victorio Tarco and 
Merl Freeland. Both are well known 
on the campus and have appeared in 
many recitals. Miss Turco, concert- 
master of the orchestra, will play 
"Ballade and Polonaise" by Vieux- 
temps. This number is a favorite with 
concert violinists and recently was 
used by Toscannini on one of his pro- 
grams. Mr. Freeland, piano teacher 
at L. V., has made concert appear- 
ances here and throughout the United 
States, will play one of the most popu- 
lar of all piano concertos, the "B 
Flat Minor Concerto" by Tchaikow- 
sky. The brilliance and grandeur of 
the first movement of this concerto 
can hardly be rivalled. It is a tremen- 
dous work filled with vigor and power 
and ending in a brilliant finale. 

The numbers the orchestra will play 
include : 

"Star Spangled Banner." 

"The Moldau" — Smetana.

Ice Provides Prop 
For Outdoor Party 

The Y. M. C. A. with President 
Gockley in charge sponsored a skating 
party on Kreider's Pond, Friday eve- 
ning, January 9, beginning at 7:30. 

A group of approximately sixty 
students were present. Decorations 
consisted of candles and Japanese lan- 
terns, and a portable victrola provid- 
ed the music for the affair. After in- 
dulging in the sport for a couple of 
hours, the skaters returned to the 
campus and were served refreshments 
in North Hall Parlor. 

It has been announced that a simi- 
lar party will be held again tomorrow 
evening if the weather permits. If 
there is no conflict with any other ac- 
tivity, and if the weather provides the 
facilities, more ice skating parties in 
charge of the Y's will be held in the 

In 1924 there was founded The Na- 
tional Association of Schools of Music 
for the "purpose of establishing closer 
relationships between schools of music 
and allied arts, and between them and 
the state boards or commissions, and 
also to co-operate with the various 
educational associations which may 
directly or indirectly affect the cause 
of music." Since that time the Asso- 
ciation has grown until it has (Decem- 
ber, 1941) ninety-one institutions 
ranking as full members, and forty- 
seven schools in the varying stages of 

Schools admitted to membership in 
the NASM must give evidence of per- 
manence and stability, having auth- 
ority to grant degrees in music and 
possess a faculty and equipment cap- 
able of maintaining the high stand- 
ards prescribed by the Association. 
When schools fail to maintain the re- 
quired standards, their membership 
may be revoked or suspended. Various 
types of schools may be admitted to 
membership. They may be schools of 
music under parent institutions of 
colleges or universities ; they may be 
conservatories of music, institutes of 
fine ari;s, or independent schools main- 
tained by individuals. All schools ap- 
plying for membership must be non- 
profit corporations. 

The Conservatory of Music of Leba- 
non Valley College applied for mem- 
bership in the fall cf 1941. This can 
be granted only after catalogues, rec- 
ords, questionnaires submitted by the 
school^ have been carefully studied. 
An examination of the institution is 
conducted, the examiner checking the 
actual work of the school, the housing 
and all material equipment, the stu- 
dent personnel and attitudes, the fac- 
ulty, the library and its possibilities, 
the office arrangement, the keeping of 
permanent records, etc. 

The examiner for Lebanon Valley 
College was Dr. Earl V. Moore, Dir- 
ector of the School of Music of the 
University of Michigan. After a day 
on the campus verifying the report 
sent to him earlier, visiting classes, 
listening to an impromptu recital, and 
giving careful study to the student 
teaching setup at Hershey, Dr. Moore 
was able to give an excellent report

Radio and Code Class 

Calls For Volunteers 

Those men students desirious of 
learning how to send and receive wire- 
less and code will be given an oppor- 
tunity to enroll in a class given such 
instruction. At 12:45 on Friday, Jan- 
uary 16, those wishing to sign up for 
such a course will meet in room 5 of 
the Administration Building. 

Since the class must be of a size 
which Lebanon Valley can accommo- 
date immediately the first to enroll 
will be the privileged group. The 
army system will be used and the ad- 
vice of authorities will determine the 
course. The goal of this plan is the 
equipping of men to send and l-eceive 
messages in code to meet the demand 
which exists in the United States

Renewed Regime . . 

"New regime" were two words on 
the lips of every student for several 
weeks earlier in the school year. Per- 
haps it killed itself, perhaps it never 
existed or perhaps it was a bit of 
mob hysteria. 

Regardless of what it was, we had 
unity, cooperation, and spirit. And it 
is gone. Our total situation, college 
and national is altered. — Well, the 
point is^ L. V. must now show that it 
has the intelligence to weather the 

At the F. and M. game we showed 
as little animation as in an eight 
o'clock. If that is the way we "take it" 
we are such poor sports (Yes, we are 
giving a pep talk, disgust you though 
it may:) that you've said "Bang, go 
the shutters of the mind," and will 
read no more. 

"On land, on sea, in the air — modern 
design!" that was the motto of the 
new regime. "In the game, on the 
bench, in the class — alert for defense !" 
that must be our motto now. We are 
going to give all, take all, and do all 
be it for World Friendship^ loyalty 
for L. V. C, or for our country. 

To Our Musicians. . 

To the entire Conservatory of Music 
we wish to pay tribute and offer con- 
gratulations for the national recog- 
nition it has received. We wish to 
congratulate every faculty member of 
the music department, the Lebanon 
Valley administrators, and every stu- 
dent in the department for the new 
honor they have brought us. 

It is true that we have long been 
grateful for the band, glee club, and 
orchestra, but now we more fully 
realize the merit of work done within 
the walls of Engle Hall. Due to this 
national approbation we are prouder 
than ever of this portion of L. V. 
and doff our hats to those responsible 
for it. 

Eve-Extension Notes 

With National Defense efforts in- 
creasing daily, most of the Eve-Ex- 
tension girls are taking additional 
evening classes in Red Cross first aid 
courses, canteen courses and other 
subjects related to the nation's deter- 
mination to win the war. Some State 
employees have volunteered for extra 
work in the evenings and on Satur- 
days at the State Defense Council, 
where typists and other clerical work 
ers are needed. Students with the 
heaviest schedules at schools are fore- 
most among those with the most 
"spare time" to devote to defense 
work. A few Eve-Extension students 
are taking additional work in Gov- 
ernment-sponsored defense classes in 
technical subjects. The remainder, who 
for very good reasons find it impos- 
sible to participate directly, are car- 
rying their full share of the burden 
by cutting non-essentials from their 
budgets and purchasing defense bonds 
and stamps to help crush the enemy. 

Eve-Extension student, Albert Kan- 
sas, of Harrisburg, has been called by 
his draft board for examination, and 
may be inducted into the armed forces. 

Jimmy Watson, evening school stu- 
dent, of Steelton, suffered injuries in 
a recent auto accident and has been 
unable to attend classes. Fellow stu- 
dents wish him a speedy recovery. 

Miss Mildred C. Carlin, of Wilkes- 
Barre, and Eve-Extension student 
John Baer, of Harrisburg, were mar- 
ried in Union City, N. J., on New 
Year's Day. After a wedding trip to 
New York City and Montreal; it|le cou- 
ple are residing in Harrisburg.

New Committee To Arrange 
1942 School Calendar 

At a special meeting of the Student- 
Faculty Council on Wednesday, Jan- 
uary 14 a new calendar committee 
was designated by the president Don- 
ald Glen. Dean Stonecipher, Donald 
Bartley, and David Gockley comprise 
the committee. All dates for events 
must be presented to one of these for 
approval for entrance on the school 
calendar. The committee requests that

to the Commission on Curricula of 
the NASM. This report was given on 
December at Minneapolis with Miss 
Gillespie present. After a few minor 
changes were suggested, Dr. Moore 
complimented the Music Department 
on its excellent pianos, unusually good 
organ, cleanliness, high grade instruc- 
tion, and serious attitude of the en- 
tire student body. Two points of 
special merit were mentioned: the 
quality of, and unusual facilities for 

student teaching at Hershey; the high 
standard of musical performance byltional membership 

the Conservatory students. Further 
appreciation of the latter was shown 
when Dr. Moore offered Victoria Tur- 
co and Betty Shillott teaching fellow- 
ships for graduate study at the Uni- 
versity of Michigan. 

The Conservatory of Music of Leba- 
non Valley College was granted the 
associate member status at the an- 
nual convention of the NASM which 
met in Minneapolis, December 28-31. 
All accepted schools remain in the 
associate member group for a period 
of two years. At the end of that time

tion was written in 1887 while Br h 
was in his fifty-fourth year. Brah 
does himself an injustice when so a* 
ing in such terms; for Clara Sch 
mann remarked that Brahms 
more than the necessary equi Pmen t f 
undertake such a work. To prove h 
statement she pointed out that behj ^ 
him he had his four great sympho , 
ies, his two cello sonatas, and two 
his three violin sonatas. In addit'° 
to this she said that such a composer 
"may be said to understand the cap' 
acity of instruments." The work re' 
ceived much criticism when it Wa j 
first performed; Tschaikowsky Sai(] 
the work did not impress him at all 
Derisive opinions shrouded the work 
with insignificance for a long per j 0( ] 
of time. The unconventional device of 
using two solo instruments with a con- 
certo made its acceptance as a great 
work impossible in the eyes of critics 
and biographers of Brahms. With the 
passage of time the novelty of this 
new form has disappeared, and no 
longer does it disturb the person who 
listens to classical music with an ap- 
preciative ear. Brahms treated the 
composition as if he were using a 
wholly familiar instrumental combina- 
tion instead of giving full display val- 
ue to the solo instruments. 

The Double Concerto in A Minor is 
divided into three movements in which 
one may enjoy the power of symphonic 
music pleasantly coupled with the 
charm of a string quartet, the latter 
effect being obtained when bcth in- 
struments play together and use the 
device of double stopping. 

All three movements are notable 
for beauty of theme and power of ex- 
pression. In the last movement one 
finds a touch of humor; Tovey, who 
wrote an essay on the work says that 
humor is "the most deadly crime pos- 
sible to a great work." Notwithstand- 
ing the humor it is one of the greatest 
finales created by Brahms. 

This magnificent composition is 
available on Victor Records; the solo 
instruments are played by Heifetz 
and Feuermann while the orchestral 
accompaniment is by the Philadelphia 
Symphony. Needless to say the com- 
position is performed with the beauty 
and skill for which the artists are 
noted. The recording itself is unique 
for it is devoid of surface noise and 
possesses remarkable quality. The 
album will be a most welcome addi- 
tion to the shelves of any collector o

F. & M. Court 
Squad Defeats 
Valley 49-39 

Both Teams Lose Four 
Courtsters On Personals 

The Lebanon Valley College drib- 
blers lost their third court contest of 
the season and second fray on the 
schedule last Saturday night by a 49- 
39 score at the Lebanon High School 
floor when the F. & M. basketeers, de- 
fending champions of the Eastern Pa. 
Collegiate Basketball League, stopped 
a Blue & White rally in the third 
stanza and then went ahead to cop the 
contest by a ten point margin. The 
fray was marked by early showers for 
3 quartet of players for both college 
outfits as 38 personal fouls were called 
by the men in the striped suits. At 
the close of the battle only Steve Kub- 
isen, top scorer for the Dutchmen with 
17 points to his credit, remained in ac- 
tion out of the starting quintet. 

The Diplomats were behind 4-0 af- 
ter a few minutes of play but rallied 
to assume a 9-4 lead and were never 
headed from that point. The half 
closed with the visitors in charge of 
the game by a 31-23 count. The In- 
trieri-coached men spurted in the third 
quarter to close to within two points 
of the F. & M. aggregation but slipped 
behind again when Staley, Matala, 
Drum and Smith were given early dis- 
missals. Mackin and Hauscher with 
17 and 12 pointers respectively were 
the best bets for the Diplomats.

Sports in Shorts j 

By Louise f 

On Monday, January 12, the wom- 
en's inter-dorm basketball league 
opened its season with a bang. In the 
first game, South Hall, last year s 
champion team, fell in defeat at the 
hands of a strong day student aggre- 
gation, with the final score standing 
24-21. The rivalry between these two 
teams is particularly keen, as in the 
history of inter-dorm competition, 
these two teams have always battled 
for top position. Scoring honors for 
bcth teams were rather well divided 
among the forwards, with Stoneciph- 
M of the day students just a nose 
ahead of the others. Further games 
will be announced as soon as possible, 
since a definite schedule has not yet 
been arranged.

points while Hoerner, his teammate, 
and Yoder of the opponents each reg- 
istered ten. The fracas was marked 
by severe body checks and heated de- 
fensive play. 

"Ted" Youse and his Midgets eked 
out a 31-27 victory over "Lefty" Lit- 
tle's Indians as they put in a deter-; 
mined bid for the lead in the league. 
The defensive work of Schnee stood 
out for the winners while Captain Lit- 
tle and Fake garnered the usual ten 
counters apiece. 

"Bud" Boltz couldn't keep his sights 
on the hoop when his Tigers met Met- 
ro's Mighty Atoms and as a result vic- 
tory went to big "Steve" and his boys. 
Points were evenly divided for the 
Atoms as Captain "Steve," Gerhart: 
and Heagy had thirteen, twelve '.nd 
eleven points respectively. "Ted" 
Bachman and "Chic" Edwards, two 
local boys, led the Tigers in their fu- 
tile quest for a conquest. The final 
score read 39 to 25 with the Tigers 
on the short end. 

Pivot Man 

Comeback Saves 
Frosh 34-29 Victory 
In Tilt With F&M 

Jerry Frock's young Dutchmen 
staged a veritable Merriwell comeback 
on the Lebanon High School court 
Saturday night in pulling a 34-29 vic- 
tory over the F. and M. Freshmen 
out of the fire after the contest ap- 
peared hopelessly lost. 

The game, played as the prelimi- 
nary encounter to the varsity game, 
left the fans limp from the excitement 
which developed and amazed at the 
sensational turn of events in the sec- 
ond half. 

Outclassed and outpassed by the vis- 
itors in the first two stanzas, the Blue 
and White first year passers looked 
helpless behind a 20-5 first half score. 
Coming out after the rest period, the 
Frosh looked like an entirely different 
team when John Schreiber and Ben 
Wasileski decided to take matters into 
their own hands. With these two lads 
showing the way, the Frockmen came 
bouncing back to completely steal the 
show from the astounded visiting 

They opened up with a devastating 
attack that saw them post a 13-6 ad- 
vantage in that chukker and reduce 
their deficit to 26-18 at three-quar- 
ters, but that only served to give them 
momentum for an all-out winning at- 
tack in the final chukker. They had 
the visiting youngsters completely on 
the run and thoroughly dominated the 
picture in a one-sided final period in 
racking up a 16-3 margin of superior- 
ity to pull the game out of the fire in 
one of the most spectacular comebacks 
ever staged on any "b. b." court. 

Wasileski paced the first year quin- 
tet with ten points, while Schreiber 
was close with nine sinkers, all of 
them in the second half. Stock was 
the losers' best bet with 11 counters. 
Maley and Mateyak performed nobly 
in the back court.

Varsity Recognition 
By Athletic Council 

The Athletic Council of Lebanon 
Valley College recently issued "L" 
certificates to seventeen athletes who 
earned their varsity letters in football 
for their efforts on the gridiron dur- 
ing the past fall. The list includes 
five seniors, three juniors, two soph- 
omores, and seven freshmen. Hall, a 
sophomore guard, who earned his let- 
ter in his first year as a gridder at L. 
V. C, decided to terminate his studies 
at college prior to the holiday season 
and will not be available for service 
along the line next year. The list of 
varsity performers is as follows: 

Seniors: Ralph Shay, Donald Stal- 
ey, Steve Kubisen, Joseph Carr, and 
John Swope. 

Juniors: Henry Schmaltzer, Harry 
Matala, John Eminhizer. 

Sophomores: Nick Dorazio and John 

Freshmen: David Latz, William

Hornets in Volley Ball 

In the lone volley ball game of the 
week, the Botch Bros, ran wild against 
Shay's Green Hornets. The combina- 
tion of Yoder, Uhrich, Elmer Horst 
and Hummel completely demoralized 
their opponents by placing the spher- 
oid time after time in places far from 
the reach of either Shay or Hoerner 
or Whisler or Hocker and thus only 
allowed them two points as they 
pounded out a 15-2 victory to come 
within striking distance of the league- 
leading Mighty Atoms.

By F. I. 

In dropping by the gym the other day about noon-time your writer 
found a howling bunch of rabid fans thronging the balcony as the Botch 
Bros, rang up another victory to hold their first place position in the Day 
Student Basketball League. The Green Hornets threatened to tie up the 
league leaders when they engaged Bud Boltz's Tigers in a do-or-die battle 
yesterday which your scribe was not able to witness as is his custom. 

Only one disconcerting note has been found in the improved inter-mural 
program this year. Although six teams are included in competition this sea- 
son rather than four outfits as in other years, many of our Day Student 
friends have failed to avail themselves of this very splendid opportunity 
to have a great time in the gym whether the result of the day's efforts is a 
win or a loss. On some occasions it has been found that games have had 
to be forfeited because an insufficient number of players have turned out at 

The break between halves of the basketball contest provides a wonder- 
ful chance for competition in a really swell game of volley ball. Apparently 
some of our boys have not realized what a great game it is. Why, I really 
enjoy trying to beat the other team in gym classes twice a week and look 
forward to the next opportunity to play the game. And then, here comes 
another chance to take a crack at the game during the lunch hour. Come, 
come, boys, don't miss this fine chance to have some real fun and healthful 

It is good to note that many more of the boys have taken an interest 
in inter-mural sports this year. This perhaps results from the ever increasing 
effort of our splendid gym instructor to teach the boys the fundamentals of 
the game. A punching bag has been secured for those who may desire to 
take a fling at the fisticuffs arena and bow into the limelight by way of 
the annual Golden Gloves tournament. Quite an interest is shown in hand- 
ball in gym classes this year and it is anticipated that the handball tourna- 
ment will have even better success than in other years. We have noticed that 
even with our limited facilities at L. V. C. our boys are making the best 
of things. A larger number of our Frank Merriwells have been found par- 
ticipating in the intermural program and with greater enthusiasm and 'skill. 
We hope this spirit continues until the close of the college year and springs 
up again next year for us to carry on so successfully as at present. 

The basketball inter-mural program in the men's dormitory is scheduled 
to begin as soon as the examinations are out of the way. The winners of 
this league will play the victors in the Day Students League at the com- 
pletion of play in both groups to proclaim the inter-mural champs. A volley 
ball tournament has been begun within the gym classes and elimination has 
already taken place. 

Ursinus Beat Frosh 
Despite Late Rally 

The inexperienced L. V. C. year- 
lings were no match for the fast step- 
ping Ursinus College Cubs, finishing 
on the short end of a 37-19 score in 
the game played as a preliminary to 
the varsity contest at Collegeville last 
week. John Schreiber, flashy forward, 
hailing from Lebanon, led the local 
cause with nine points. Wasileski and 
Beck came next with four points each. 
The third quarter rally, in which the 
young Dutchmen outpointed their ri- 
vals, came too late in the game to ov- 
ertake the accurate shooting cubs.

Men Day Students 
Plan Handball 
Tournaments Next 

It was announced this week that a 
single handball tournament will take 
place immediately after the first se- 
mester exams under the supervision 
of the Men Day Student's Congress. 
As soon as this tournament is com- 
pleted a doubles playoff will take place 
to top off the intermural program be- 
fore the Easter vacation. Rules used 
in other years will probably be adopt- 

Last year about 30 enthusiastic ath- 
letes participated in the tournament 
which ran for several weeks until a 
champ was crowned. With one round 
of play being completed each week 
and less time being needed in the last 
stages of the competition, the winner 
is usually found on top after downing 
five opponents in three or four weeks. 

Nearly as many register for the 
doubles tournament and spirit rises 
even higher when the odds on favor- 
ites fall by the wayside or continue 
their streak of wins as the case may 
be. The top men in the singles play 
usually team up to take on the others 
in any combination. A really fine 
game develops with four players try- 
ing their best to outdo each other in 
a fast and furious game. 

All men day students who are in- 
terested to enter the tournament by 
signing their name at once to the sheet 
provided on the. bulletin board oppo- 
site the gym locker room.

College Students 
To Organize 
For Defense 

Volunteer Land Corps 
Plan Described by 
Dorothy Thompson 

Hundreds of young men and women, 
especially students in eastern colleges 
and universities will be enlisted to 
work on Vermont farms between May 
and October as members of the Volun- 
teer Land Corps, a newly formed or- 
ganization described by Dorothy 
Thompson, newspaper columnist, in 
the January issue of Free America, 
monthly agrarian magazine published 
at 112 East 19th Street New York. 
Student workers, who must be at least 
16 years of age, will receive wages of 
$21 a month, in addition to board and 
lodging. The Corps, which was started 
by a group of city-bred Harvard and 
Dartmouth students who have been 
working on small Vermont farms, will 
have no connection with any govern- 
ment agency and will be financed by 
private funds. 

According to Miss Thompson a re- 
cent survey of all the farm agencies 
in Vermont indicates that there will 
be a 40% labor shortage in the coming 
summer on the 27,000 farms in the 
state which normally employ over 
20,000 hired helpers. Members of the 
Volunteer Land Corps will supply as 
large a part as possible of this antici- 
pated lack of needed labor. 

"The Volunteer Land Corps started 
with the simple idea that it is unfair 
that some boys should have to serve 
for soldier's pay and risk their lives 
in the armed forces while others work- 
ed at high wages in munitions fac- 
tories, and others pursued their edu- 
cation in high schools and colleges 
quite untouched," says Miss Thomp- 
son. "Hard work or> farms was the 
nearest thing to work in barracks. 
Hard work on farms is probably the 
best possible preparation for military 
training later." 

"The Department of Agriculture 
has sent out word to the farmers of 
the nation: increase Production. But 
farmers are suffering, in all parts of 
the country except the south, from an 
acute labor shortage. Theeir own sons 
have been drawn into the munition in- 
dustries or drafted into the army. Yet 
among young men of military age, 
there are thousands who have been re- 
jected by the army because their eyes 
are not too good or because they suf- 
fer from other minor disabilities. 
Other thousands will be called . . ." 

These young men, Miss Thompson 
says, will be recruited for the hard 
toil on farms, unless and until the na- 
tion calls them to other duties. The 
Corps is especially anxious to enlist 
college girls to assist farmers' wives 
and to do such light farm work as 
they are fitted for. 

"The Volunteer Land Corps sees 
something that needs to be done, that 
nobody wants greatly to do, and sets 
out to do it," says Miss Thompson. 
"America must grow food — to use, to 
ship, to store; food to dry, can, and 
otherwise preserve. Food for armies 
and food for starving Europe. Food 
that is a necessary weapon for war 
and can be the greatest political in- 
strument for peace." 

Student organizers, recruited from 
recently graduated classes^ will be 
sent into Vermont during January, ac- 
cording to Miss Thompson, in order 
to study the problem and the needs; 
and by living with farmers, to estab- 
lish, contacts with granges, churches 
and other community institutions, and 
to prepare the way for the coming 
army of student farm workers. 

"The Volunteer Land Corps envis- 
ages more than hard work for the 
valiant and short-of-help farmers," 
says Miss Thompson. "They are plan- 
ning a program through which they 
will meet every weekend for at least 

one meal together in every township 
or region, adding to their own num- 
bers the young men and women of the 
towns and villages . . . And in these 
weekend meetings, this corps recruited 
from the colleges intends to discuss 
the issues of the war and the peace, 
the problems of their nation and their 
times, and establish among themselves 
a solidarity of viewpoint toward the 
issues for which they work and are 
prepared to fight . . . Out of the com- 
munity of work for the American 
land they hope to build a better un- 
derstanding of nationhood, and the 
strong clear vision of what Victory 
must mean." 

Miss Thompson says that the Vol- 
unteer Land Corps has a Vermont 
sponsoring committee composed of 
"every farm agency in the state, in- 
cluding the Commissioner of Agri- 
culture, the head of the Extension 
Service, the chief of the Department 
of Home Economics, the head of the 
Farm Bureau, and others." 

A temporary headquarters office 
for the Volunteer Land Corps has 
been established at 51 East 42nd 
Street New York City, with Arthur 
Root, Executive Officer, in charge. 
For the coming summer, activities will 
be restricted to the state of Vermont

fathers. Then the speaker promptly 
invited Mr. Wells to finish the lecture, 
pnd since that day lecturing has been 
his profession. 

As the topic of his address Mr. 
Wells chose Africa and the Battle of 
the Atlantic which he discussed pro- 
fusely, citing many of his own experi- 
ences in the foreign countries concern- 

The remainder of the meeting was 
given to open discussion, at which 
time both the student body and facul- 
ty readily utilized this splendid oppor- 
tunity to ask Mr. Wells questions as 
to the state of affairs, and what he 
predicted for the future. It was dur- 
ing this portion of the discussion that 
the student body became aware of the 
presence of Mrs. Wells in the rear of 
the chapel, when she rose for an in- 
troduction at the request of Dr. 
Lynch. Mrs. Wells was recently listed 
among the first one hundred leading 
American speakers, a fact which Mr. 
Wells could not understand, since he 
had been her teacher and had not re- 
ceived any recognition himself. 

The reaction of the student body to 
the address was varied. "Why don't 
more veterans follow the example set 
by Carveth Wells and wear their vic- 
tory medals? — It gives the present 
generation something to think about."

seriousness of the present situation." 
—Charles "PeeWee" Miller. "Good 
speech, but bauxite is plentiful in U. 
S." — George Ziegler. "The lecture was 
very interesting, and Mr. Wells just 
radiated with personality." — Ruth 
Heminway. "A very entertaining 
speaker, although he showed an occa- 
sional tendency to exaggerate or mis- 
interpret facts." — Marion Kreider.

2nd Semester 
Will Include 
War Courses 

Lebanon Valley Meets Need 
gy New Term's Schedule 

The effects of the War Program 
-jll be felt on campus in the courses 
that are to be offered henceforth to 
the student body. The American 
Chemical Society has recommended 
the adoption of a new set-up in the 
regular chemistry course whereby stu- 
dent chemists will be given special 
professional training. Advanced Eng- 
lish courses will no longer be a prere- 
quisite of the course in chemistry. On- 
ly one year of English composition 
will be required, expressly for the 
purpose of giving instruction in the 
writing of technical papers. 

In the Economics Department, Eco- 
nomics 73, which is a study of Con- 
temporary Economic Problems, will be 
changed to a course in the Economics 
of War. As Professor Grimm states 
it: "The student who enrolls in this 
course will be taught how to pay bills 
without money during wartime." 

For the benefit of those men who 
expect to enter into some branch of 
the service, an evening course in the 
Elements of Morse Code will be of- 
fered. In all probability one or two 
special mathematics courses will also 
be added to the curriculum for their 

Twenty-four men have enrolled in 
the Morse Code course which will be- 
gin immediately following examina- 
tions. Classes are planned for Monday 
and Wednesday evenings, with in- 
struction by Chet Sherman of Leba- 
non, local amateur radio expert, Pro- 
fessor Grimm, and Lieutenant Wey-

Shay and Miller 
Organize Defense 

Ralph Shay, director of the Student 
Defense Council, and Professor Fred- 
eric Miller, faculty adviser, report 
that their plans for student defense 
are gradually being put into effect, as 
the first student defense group has 
already attended classes concerning 
its duties. Classes taught by J. Gor- 
don Starr for air raid wardens were 
held in Palmyra. These students who 
attended received specific instructions 
which they will pass on to the others 
in small groups. It is imperative that 
each student should know what to do 
because of the crowded conations of 
the dormitory. 

Instructors for the first aid group 
and for the fire wardens will be here 
within the next two weeks, is soon as 
they have completed their work with 
other county groups.

Students Are Guests 
At Youth Luncheon 

"Kodaya," as he is known to the 
young people (or Dr. Albert W. 
Warmingham, as he is known to the 
old and sober) , addressed a luncheon 
meeting of the Student Senate of Leb- 
anon High School at Trinity Lutheran 
Church on Tuesday, January 20. 
Speaking before an audience which 
included Dr. Lynch, our president, and 
Betty Gooden, Dorothy Jean Light, 
Marjorie Frantz, and Earl Reber of 
the college, the noted member of the 
American Youth Foundation present- 
ed a topic especially appropriate at 
this time, "The Long View of Life." 
Dr. Warmingham is well qualified to 
speak for American Youth, for he has 
attended the Foundation's summer 
camp in New England and has served 
as apprentice to the college viewpoint 
as a teacher at Boston University. He 
is also known as a poet and musician.

By Janet Schopf 
Good company, pretty gowns, huge 
mirrors, smooth dance floor, snappy 
orchestra, luxurious lounge — this was 
Clio! Hotel Hershey was just the 
place for a formal dance. A contin- 
ual fountain beneath an encircling 
balcony, soft, sinking, plushy sofas 
(and plenty of them) furnished just 
the atmosphere necessary to give one 
that very special feeling which should 
accompany all successful dances. Then 
certainly honorable mention should 
be given to the guide who escorted so 
many of us to the tower and so gra- 
ciously showed us some rare canaries, 
which, he declared, could sing very 
beautifully. However sofas, canaries, 
and even the tower lost their charm 
as the swaying, lilting strains of 
Frank Taylor's Orchestra drifted to 
our ears. Everyone was brought to his 
feet and forced into motion by such 
excellent music. But then, why not, 
when four of our own "conservites," 

Al Morrison, Frankie Unger, Tony 
Gerace and Meredith Germer were 
very much responsible for those sweet, 
mellow notes. 

To the committee who selected the 
programs and favors should go a very 
special bouquet. The bangle pins 
which adorned the programs and 
which now are an important part of 
many of our co-eds apparel evidently 
went over with a bang, and the sou- 
venir-savers have a new trinket to add 
to their list. The favors, brown 
leather wallets and cigarette cases, 
affixed with Clio's seal, to satisfy both 
smokers and non-smokers, received 
very favorable nods and applause 
from our male guests. 

Among the special guests of the so- 
ciety were Dr. and Mrs. Lynch, Prof, 
and Mrs. Miller, Prof, and Mrs. Rut- 
ledge and Miss Myers. Then too, a 
number of alumni, most of them re- 
cent graduates, honored us with their 
presence. Some familiar names in- 

clude Audrey Immler, Margie Bord 
well, Dottie Schindel, Ellen Ruppers 
burger, Betty Ann Rutherford, Joan 
Cox Mary Elizabeth Spangler, Eve- 
lyn Ware Lynch, and Jane Smith 

However, Clio has not spent all its 
time, efforts, and money in having 
fun and making merry, and it was 
due to chance that there were any 
favors or programs. Since the new in- 
terest in national defense has devel- 
oped on campus, Clio decided to do 
away with favors and programs and 
to use the money spent on them to buy 
defense bonds. As the order was al- 
ready underway it could not be can- 
celled. But Clio is going to participate 
in the new defense program and help 
the cause by investing its remaining 
treasury in defense bonds. Then 
there's the second semester in which 
we are going to renew our efforts and 
guide our thoughts along more seri- 
ous channels.

A Fable • . . 

Once upon a time there was a 
little worm called Oozy-Woozy. Now, 
he was very happy in his dark, earthy 
home with the green grass roof-yard. 
Oozy-Woozy would crawl out and 
think what a grand world this is and 
then he would crawl back in again 
and think what a nice home he had. 
But one day he became very, very sad, 
because, when he crawled out, it was- 
n't a grand world any more — it was 
hard, cruel, plain world. Now aren't 
you sorry for Oozy-Woozy? Wouldn't 
you like to help him? — 

Yes, you got the point. If you re- 
frain from making cowpaths where 
only worms should crawl, Oozy- Woozy 
can once more be happy in his L. V. 
campus home. 

Eve-Extension Notes 

Just in case you've been listening 
to the hysterical cries of the world 
"going to the dogs" or the "downfall 
of civilization," semester's end is a 
good time to throw off the gloom and 
start doing something to prevent this 
catastrophe. The world will go right 
along with us, in whatever direction 
we take it, and our future will be just 
about what we plan if we're strong 
enough to carry through with the 
plans. Eve-extension students can do 
their share in making post-war Amer- 
ica a better country than ever before 
by having their friends and acquaint- 
ances prepare for this trying period 
through evening and extension classes. 
Classes during the next semester are 
now being scheduled to meet the re- 
quirements of the majority of stu- 
dents, so if you get your bid in early 
you have a very good chance of get- 
ting the subjects you need. Classes 
will be held in Annville and Harris- 
burg, at periods convenient to most of 
the students. Americans not with the 
armed forces can serve their country 
best by increasing their value as citi- 
zens; by expanding their education 
and at the same time help finance the 
victory by purchase of Defense Bonds 
and stamps. 

Believe it or not . . 

Did you miss, read, or forget the 
resolutions made by the Student-Fac- 
ulty Council in last week's La Vie? 
Although they were more wordy they 
really said, "SAVE." 

To save time to save money, (but 
not to buy at the Food Fair) is what 
they are trying to get you to do. They 
can not tie down the individuals or or- 
ganizations by saying that they for- 
bid this or that — that would be called 
undemocratic. Yet they know that all 
of us will manage to spend the time 
or money for any whim we cherish — 
and that that would be called unpat- 
riotic. Hence their one hope is that we 
direct our whims along more economic 
lines. Part of this hope is that you 
get the most out of the simple things 
of life. 

A nd it can be done. 

La Vie will not be issued until 
February 12. This two-week cur- 
tailment is necessitated by the ex- 
amination period. 

Book Reviews 

The Timeless Land 

Australia, which took a few boat- 
loads of convicts who landed at Sid- 
ney Harbor in 1788 to make its poor 
pioneer stock, is the setting of this 
tale of the black people whose nat- 
ural gaiety was so quickly destroyed. 
The survival was due mainly to Cap- 
tain Philip. Andrew Prentice is the 
red-headed convict who escapes and 
takes a native wife while Bennilong 
embodies the black man who develops 
a fatal friendliness toward the Eng- 
lish. This all goes into a fresh back- 
ground for this Australian author's 
most ambitious novel. 

I Paid Hitler 

This is the confession of the great- 
est of German industrialists, Fritz 
Thyssen's story of how he gave Hit- 
ler and the Nazi Party the money that 
brought them into power. Perhaps 
more than any other one man, Thyssen 
is responsible for Hitler. During the 
years following Hitler's accession, 
Thyssen was in a unique position to 
see the inside workings of the Nazi 
Regime. He tells in detail of the cor- 
ruption in high places and the effects 
of religious persecution. In this book 
American readers have for the first 
time a story told by a superior of Hit- 
ler's. Thyssen has his own solution 
for the German problem, which may 
be startling to some, but it comes 
from one of the greatest nationalists. 

Young Man of Caracas 

Here's an exciting, irresistible South 
American "Life With Father," that 
you should really look into! Young 
Tommy Ybarra's choice of parents 
lead him into a life filled to overflow- 
ing with almost fictional romance and 
adventure. You will love and long re- 
member his father, a General from 
Venezuala, for his flair for the grand 
manner, for his magnificent inconsis- 
tencies, for his vigor, humanity, and 
gusto. His mother is equally colorful 
— Plymouth-Rock Bostonian belle — 
tamer of her fiery mate — raiser of 
good New Englander children despite 
their un-Bostonian surroundings. You 
will chuckle over the faithful Irish 
Maid and her struggles with her Lat- 
in wooers, over the General's battle 
with the English language, over elev- 
en-year-bid Tommy going off to his 
first revolution. Here's a richly hu- 
man book you'll want to have and to

I From the Wings \ 

On February 3rd, 4th, and 5th the 
Harrisburg Community players will 
produce Maxwell Anderson's play, 
"High Tor." All this first semester 
the Wig and Buckle club has been try- 
ing to see one of the club's produc- 
tions, but they have always conflicted 
with campus activities. This time we 
really intend to go as a group on Wed- 
nesday night. The special admission 
wilj be 75c and transportation will be 
provided by anyone who can go. Yoj 
must see Donald Bartley as soon as 
possible, so that he can order tickets 
and arrange for transportation. "Hig jl 
Tor" is one of Maxwell Anderson's 
best and the Community players have 
been doing unusually good work ^ 
their recent productions. We thm-^ 
you'll find the play well worth the 
time and money invested. 

There is just one more 
announcement this week. The 
date for the Junior play is Febru- 
ary 11.

pucknell Wins 
Easily Over 
Valley Squad 

Dutchmen Snowed Under 
By 77-44 Score 

The Bucknell Bisons experienced lit- 
j e trouble in downing the Lebanon 
Valley courtsters by a 77-44 count on 
j| on day evening at Lewisburg in an 
gastern Penna. Collegiate Basketball 
League game. The home team went 
t0 work from the start and racked up 
bucket after bucket as the Dutchmen 
looked on helplessly. The Bucknell 
mentor gave his substitutes plenty of 
Hiae in the ball game and found that 
an y combination outplayed the falter- 
ing Valleyites. 

The Bisons outscored the Blue and 
White 24-12 the first period and then 
went on to outpoint the Intrieri coach- 
ed men in the second canto to post a 
34-20 lead as the half ended. The in- 
termission rest did little to soothe the 
spirits of the up-state collegians who 
set a torrid pace in the last half. In 
the last period, the Bucknell basket- 
eers garnered 26 points to the Blue 
and White's 11. 

Haines of the Bisons established a 
new league record when he slashed 
14 field goals and 9 charity heaves 
through the cords for a total of 37 
counters. The record in this depart- 
ment had previoiusly been held by 
Raymie Frey of Lebanon Valley who 
rang up 34 points in the spring of 
1938. The remainder of the victors 
points were distributed among a half 
a dozen Bisons. Staley scored 14 points 
to lead the Dutchmen for the night. 
Mease had 13 counters and Kubisen 
gained 11 pointers for the losing 

Botch Bros. And 
Green Hornets 
Fight For Lead 

The Botch Bros, continued their 
quest for the championship of the Day 
Student Basketball League by down- 
ing "Lefty" Little's Indians 30-27. 
Yoder of the victors proved uns top- 
able as he rolled up seventeen points 
only to be outdone by Fake of the 
Indians who garnered twenty markers. 
Capt. Uhrich and Nicholas guarded 
the Botch basket in an aggressive and 
effective manner. 

Hot on the tail of the before-men- 
tioned Botch Bros., Shay's Green Hor- 
nets battled "Bud" Boltz's Tigers in a 
nip-and-tuck battle to keep within 
striking distance of the leaders. The 
Hornets came out on the long end of 
the 27-24 score in a contest marked 
by keen defensive play. "Jabber" led 
his boys by caging six "peep" shots. 

"Ted" Youse and his Midgets more 
than doubled the score of their op- 
ponents, the Mighty Atoms, in their 
contest Friday noon. "Ted" himself 
accounted for twelve markers while 
"Steve" Metro proved the shining ex- 
ample for his boys by caging five 
points in the 23-11 final summary. 

The Indians finally took the "Sting" 
out of the Green Hornets as they 
downed them 43 to 39 in a heated 

Scoring in the first half featured 
Shay's boys but "Lefty's" boys woke 
up to sink basket for basket in the 
last part of the fracas. Play was even 
until Hoerner one of the Green Hor- 
net stalwarts, was ejected from the 
game due to four personal fouls. 

f L. V. C. Ace 

Dickinson Team 
Tops Blue & White 

Led by Big Jack Nieman who per- 
sonally accounted for twenty-three 
Points, the Red Devils of Dickinson 
College proved too classy for the Fly- 
ing Dutchmen as they buried them 
under a barrage of last quarter goals 
to score a 51-41 victory on their home 

Den Staley and Steve Kubisen bore 
*e brunt of the L. V. attack with 13 
£ nd 11 points respectively but it was 
not enough against the hot hands of 
Nieman and Bacon. 

The game was exceptionally rough 
m the final minutes with five players 
leaving the game via the personal foul 
rou te, including Capt. Mease, Matala, 
a nd Kubisen. In the fading minutes 
jnsult was added to injury as Nick 
^razio was tossed out of the game 
b y Referee McMillen for unnecessary 
^ghness. At the completion of the 
c °ntest ) spectators and players swarm- 
ed the floor in a general melee which 
Was broken up only by a few of the 
Coole r heads there including the 
^ ach es and officials. Just what start- 
ed the fist icuffs could not be determin- 
* but it is understood by this corner

endi ng.

l lre game but made a spirited rally

Muhlenburg Frosh 
Emerge Victorious 
Over L.V. Yearlings 

Turning in their best performance 
to date the Freshmen dribblers staged 
a desperate second half attack that 
seriously threatened the two year un- 
defeated streak of the Muhlenberg 
College first year men before giving 
up a 44-35 decision. 

As usual, the Frock coached team 
got off to a slow start and were on 
the short end of a 9-4 score at the 
quarter that increased to a 22-9 defi- 
cit at the half. 

Coming back strong after the in- 
termission, the combination of Schrei- 
ber, Mateyak, Wasileski, Maley, and 
Housel outscored the Mules 17-13 dur- 
ing the third quarter and cut the lead 
to 35-26. Mateyak was then forced 
out of the contest via the personal 
foul route and the Mules managed 
to hold the Dutchmen to a 9-9 dead- 
lock in the final stanza. 

The entire blue and white club was 
in the point column. Mateyak came 
first with 9 points, the rest of the 
team averaging 6 markers. Housel 
bloomed for the Frockmen for the first 
time in the current season. He will 
no doubt see more action in the games 
to come.

against Bucknell with 14 counterc as 
Dutchmen fail to break losing streak. 

Intrieri<men, 75-31 

Coach Mike Intrieri's experienced, 
but somewhat poorly conditioned bas- 
ketball squad met up with the fast 
stepping Mules of Doggie Julian last 
Saturday and dropped a dull uninter- 
esting tilt to the tune of 75-31. 

Julian presented one of the smooth- 
est combinations ever run in the East- 
ern Collegiate League and although 
the Dutchmen made every effort to 
stem the apparently unending stream 
of field goals, they just were complete- 
ly outclassed by the rangier boys from 

Personal fouls again wrecked the 
Blue and White as Don Staley again 
was forced to leave the fray in the 
third quarter and he was closely fol- 
lowed by Gollam and C. Miller. Up 
until his departure from the game 
Staley had scored twelve of the Val- 
ley's eighteen points in the first half. 
Captain Ralph Mease still nursing his 
injured back, has not as yet hit his 
accustomed form and was held to three 
field goals. 

For the Mules Trinkle, Stone, 
Schneider and Crampsey all hit the 
double figures, Stone showing the way 
with six field goals and four charity 
tosses for 16 points. 

The entire Blue and White squad 
saw action in the game as Intrieri was

On Monday afternoon at 4:30, the 
second game of the Women's Inter- 
Dorm League was played ; with the 
day student aggregation battering 
down North Hall lassies. For the day 
students, Ginnie Stonecipher tallied 
thirty-two points, while Miriam Car- 
per, trailing by just ten, rang up 
twenty-two points for the same crowd. 
Betty Bomgardner and Pat Bartels 
each contributed, bringing the final 
score to 67. North Hall girls must be 
commended for their sportsmanlike 
spirit in a game where the odds were 
so high against them. Upperclassmen 
seem to be too much occupied else- 
where, so the first year gals must take 
the rap. The majority of North Hall 
Frosh have had little or no experience 
in the game, so it is easily understand- 
able that they were able to tally a 
score of only 14 against the team 
that's been holding first or second 
place in the league since the beginning 
of inter-dorm competition. 

Ruth Graybill starred for the North- 
ern gals, making the greater part of 

their 14 points. Sally Porter, too, 
knew what to do when she got the 
ball. With this second victory chalked 
up for day students comes the thought 
of championship. To date ; league sta- 
tistics are as follows:

Probably, the next game will be

West Hall and North Hall. If there 
is any change, Miss Henderson will 
announce it to physical education 

The Honor Squad has been hard at 
work scheduling practices as regular- 
ly as possible. The season is getting 
off to a rather late start, as there are 
no games set for the month of Jan- 
uary. The first game will be played 
shortly after exams > with Albright 
girls coming to L. V. Campus. 


Day Students Turn 
To Class Teams 
For Intra Murals 

With the termination of the first 
semester, play in the six team Day 
Student Basketball will be com- 
pleted. During the early weeks 
of the second semester, class 
teams will begin play, the win- 
ner to play the champion in the Dor- 
mitory League which will begin its 
schedule shortly after the examina- 
tion period. 

The organization of the Day Stu- 
dent League was found very success- 
ful. However, since the dormitory 
students decided to play with class 
teams, it was deemed best that the 
day students form class teams as 
well. The captains selected are as fol-

Bullband Serenade 
Causes Excitement 

Annville was stirred last Tuesday 
night between nine and ten o'clock 
when the fire alarm sounded and a 
drumming noise was heard. Both the 
Rescue and Union Fire Companies 
responded and their apparatus was 
joined by scores of automobiles and 
wildly excited citizens. People ran in 
and out of their homes trying to de- 
termine what the fuss was all about. 
Many thought it was an air raid 
alarm and all sorts of visions crossed 
their minds. 

Finally it was discovered that a 
group of friends of a newly married 
couple, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Hein, liv- 
ing on the old Bachman farm, south 
of Annville, near the lime kiln, were 
staging a "bull-band" celebration for 
the newlyweds. Some of the celebra- 
tors had big metal drum-like barrels 
upon which they pounded, thus pro- 
ducing the strange noise that aroused 
the populace. When the fire compan- 
ies arrived at the Bachman farm, they 
discovered the reason for the excite-

Late Rally Falls 
Short For Frosh 
Against Dickinson 

The L. V. Frosh club journeyed to 
Carlisle last Wednesday , but were un- 
able to overcome a sixteen point first 
half deficit, and consequently lost a 
48-32 decision to the Dickinson Col- 
lege first year men in a game played 
as the preliminary to the varsity con- 

Dickinson starting lineup, composed 
of 5 men who were captains of their 
respective high school teams last year, 
proved too much for the scrappy but 
inexperienced blue and white year- 

Schreiber again led the Valley at- 
tack with 13 points while Woerle, Mc- 
Gee and Noonan with 12, 11, and 10 
respectively, were the big guns in the 
Dickinson scoring sprees. 

The Frock-coached clan staged one 
of their characteristic second half ral- 
lies, holding the fast stepping home 
aggregation even with 21 points, but 
the 27-11 margin enjoyed by the Dick- 
inson team at the intermission was 
too much to overcome. 

Maley and Beck shewed up nicely 
for the Valley in their guard posts 
accounting for 6 and 3 points respec-

By N. E. Frosh 
At first I could not rightfully say 
whether I possessed a passion for 
freckles or if I just had a natural 
love for little girls. However, count- 
less Saturday evenings spent in the 
seclusion of my darkroom tended to 
prove that I was capable of surviving 
without the weaker sex. Then too, it 
showed that there were other things 
than girls that could command my at- 

Strangely enough, I do not recall 
just what there was about Alice which 
attracted me. Perhaps there were so 
many things that the freckles is the 
only thing I can think of, for soon 
after I had met her I knew that I had 
a great affinity for freckles, followed 
by an ever-increasing liking for their 
owner. In addition to freckles she 
possessed such a vibrant personality 
that one could not help liking every 
inch of her. 

When seated with the band I would 
watch her bubbling over with enthusi- 
asm as she led the cheer-leaders be- 
fore the stands. She would clap her 
hand under one leg and then the other f 
whirl around, and with one last out- 
burst, leap into the air, her hands 
above her head. It is no wonder that 
our high school cheering-section roar- 
ed its lungs out. Had there been a 
roof over the stands, I fear they 
would have yelled it off for her. Just 
before I would lead the band onto the 
football field at the half, she would 
smile my way. That combination of 
smile and freckles was all I needed 
for inspiration. 

She wasn't exactly my girl. In fact, 
she had a steady beau for a few 
years. She was a buddy, a pal with 
everybody. Everyone who came into 
contact with her felt at ease with her 
perpetual smile. Even the shyest boys 
I knew could talk to her without 
blushing. Just to say "hello" to her 
and to have her flash back a bef reek- 
led smile the long way around the 
hall worth the trouble. 

Alice was a nuisance, but the kind 
of little pest you love to have around. 
Often she would work the combination 
of my locker so that I could easily 
grab my coat at noon and dash home 
for lunch. Sometimes, in passing, she 
would open the locker just for fun, 
too far from the dinner hour. Some 
mischiveous person > touring the hall 
and trying each and every locker, 
would find mine unlocked and raise 
havoc inside. I found that the greatest 
disadvantage in knowing her was 
that she did a cracker- jack job of 
keeping my mind from Problems of 
Democracy, not to mention other sub- 

I dare say that one and a half of 
these yardsticks which they give out 
at the fair every year would have mea- 
sured the distance of her brunette 
hair from the ground. She would often 
wear a red jacket to school, and, as 
she detested wearing the hood, I would 
carry it in my pocket for her. How 
it caused a before-school fight because 
a classmate wanted the hood and the 
girl is another story. Sometimes she 
would wear the hood just to please me. 
I never admitted that it made her 
look cuter, if I must use the term. She 
was so radiant with vivacity that to 
call her "Sunshine" or "Sunny" would 
have been far more appropriate than 
"Freckles." I found, however, that 
there was just one thing she would 
never do. That was to pose long 
enough for me to snap her picture. 
Once when I did succeed in obtaining 
one during a snowy afternoon, I found 
to my horror that a snow flake had 
hit the lens, ruining my shot. She 
seemed happy and fairly jubilant that 
I had been foiled again. 

Walking heme from school with her 
was almost a habit, or rather she 
walked me home for I lived nearer 
the school than she did. Most likely 
though I would walk nearly to her 
house, sometimes at the risk of miss-

The following books are newcomers

British Agent 


This personal story of the rise and 
fall of a brilliant young Scottish dip- 
lomat rises far above the usual tepid 
diplomatic members by the quality of 
its style and by the drama of its con- 
tent. Lockhart, selected in 1918 bj 
Lloyd George to head the British Mis- 
sion to Soviet Russia, knew and un- 
derstood as did no other foreigner the 
turbulent scene in those Bolshevis 
days of Trotsky and Lenin. It was e 
knowledge that cost him his carp^ 
and almost his life. His narrative tells 
of Lenin and Trotsky first hand. i> 
is as if a British representative ha< 
been in Paris during the French Re\ 
olution in daily contact with Robe? 
pierre and Dantcn. A candid biogre 
phy — a fascinating account skillfull? 
written — in short here is a disting 
uished work! 

Golden Yesterdays 


Golden indeed were those days i-r 
the 1870's when fate, posing as a sum 
mer vacation in New Hampshire 
brought together a stubborn Pennsyl 
vania girl and an energetic ynnrf 
Yankee from Boston. They were Mar- 
garet and Lcrin Deland, and this rich 
volume of reminiscences is their mu- 
tual story. 

You surely remember Mrs. Deland 
for her first book John Ward, Preach- 
er — yes, the one that shocked two 
continents into horrified discusssion. 
But this autobiography, though it 
lights a distinguished literary career 
in fiction and poetry, is concerned witr 
life rather than literature — with all 
sorts of human beings from street- 
walkers to bishops. 

There are delightful incidents: of 
Lorin driving Phillips Brooks home to 
dine in a milk wagon; of Theodore 
Roosevelt in an amazing harangue to 
the Harvard Football Club; vivid im- 
pressions of the late '90's and early 
1900's both in Europe and the United 

Attention Juniors! 

The Quittie wishes to make it 
clear to all Juniors that class dues 
for the three years must be paid 
before the end of the first semes- 
ter if the yearbook is to be pub- 
lished on time. You will positively 
not be permitted to take your se- 
mester examinations if you haven't 
paid your dues. So please help us 
out by paying them as soon as pos- 


ing a hot dinner. Somehow, you just 
couldn't be with her enough. It wasn't 
that she was such a highly intelligent 
individual, but you could stand and 
talk with her from the time school 
was out until the street lights flick- 
ered on. There was no girl that could 
walk with me the way she could. True, 
she was rather short, but she took 
pride in matching her short strides 
with my long fast ones ; laughing and 
talking the whole while. Then, too, 
she was a good listner, which made me 
want to tell her everything. My feel- 
ing for her was more than that I 
would have had for a boy friend, yet 
it was not as if I were engrossed in 
a serious infatuation. 

I could talk with her and pal with 
her, never conscious of so many little 
things, such as whether my tie was 
straight or my hair was down in the 
back. I left her, feeling refreshed 
and inspired, and wondering how soon 
I would be greeted with a sparkling 
smile surrounded with freckles and a 
soft, "Hello, how are you?" 

Frosh Poll Reveals 
Bad Reading Habits 

A poll was taken among the mem- 
bers of the present Freshman Class 
recently on the subject of magazine, 
newspaper and book reading. The 
somewhat startling results of this 
quiz have been tabulated and released 
for publication. La Vie hereby pre- 
sents them in summary. 

In regards to the number of maga- 
zines read regularly, one out of the 
12 freshmen who answered the quiz 
confessed no magazines read, 14 re- 
ported reading only one magazine, and 
77 admitted reading more than one 
magazine. Out of 79 magazines rep- 
resented, 23 of them were read ,by 
only one person, 26 of them being- 
read by more than one student. 

Concerning the number of news- 
papers read by the same 92 freshmen, 
only one reported reading no news- 
papers, two only local newspapers, and 
;0 only non-local newspapers. 

In response to a question about the 
use of the library 80 of the 92 fresh- 
men admitted using some library, 12 
used no library, 28 used more than 
one library, 52 used one library, 40 
used the school library, and 52 DID 
NOT use the school library!

Last Friday evening Dr. and Mrs. 
Wilt entertained the members of the 
Life Work Recruits in their home. 
There were twenty-two persons pres- 
ent, among whom was Dr. Deaver, 
General Secretary of the United 
Brethren Church. 

Previously a committee had been 
appointed to assist Dr. and Mrs. Wilt 
in the reception. The committee con- 
sisted of Miss Eleanor Zeigler, chair- 
man, Miss Betty Miller, and Miss Mar- 
ion Kreider. This committee not only 
provided the games and contests of 
the evening, but also sent out written 
invitations to all the members. 

After a song or two to start the 
evening off, the group was kept busy 
with games, contests and songs, which 
provoked a great deal of laughter and 
good cheer. The puns and verbal 
gems which were hurled by the mem- 
bers at each other resulted in as much 
good fun as did the organized program 
itself. Oh, yes, David Gockley man-

The design is to approximate as close- 
ly as possible the intensive six weeks 
training undergone by signal corps 
candidates at Fort Monmouth. Since 
the ability to send and receive twenty 
words a minute should put the lucky 
student three stripes ahead of the av-

to be sneezed at. Cost to enterprising 
enrollees will be nothing and it will 
probably be arranged that successful 
completion of the course will entitle 
the student to two hours credit in Phy-

ule, the payment of $8.50 per addi- 
tional semester will be necessary for 
the credits) .

Mystery Play 
Wins Applause 
For Juniors 

by Betty Foster 
Last night the Junior class present- 
el its class play to a very appreciative 
audience. It appears that Lebanon 
Valley does like murder mysteries af- 
ter all and especially that type which 
lets them in on things as "Through 
the Night" did. The idea of knowing 
the answer from the time the crime 
was committed seemed to appeal as 
much as did the brain puzzlers we're 
all used to. There was a mixture of 
suspense and humor in the play that 
gave an entirely new effect. Perhaps 
the humor even predominated if we 
can judge by the frequency of ap- 
plause in the form of laughs that was 

It is a very hard job to say who 
starred in this production. The honors 
seemed to be very evenly divided 
among several outstanding actors. 
Hans Uberseder accomplished the role 
of teh scholarly, absent-minded Bunny 
with a technique that was precisely 
waht it should have been. He fitted 
the part so well that he gave an im- 
pression of easy professionalism that 
is very unusual for an amateur. Jacob 
Rhodes in the role of Bart Jessop was 
a real surprise. His ridiculous make- 
up, exaggerated gestures and unex- 
pected vocal inflections made him the 
most melodramatic and, at the same 
time, the most realistic character of 
the play. If we get back to having 
full length plays next year he'll prob- 
ably be much in demand for character 
Parts. The three feminine leads were

Heart Sister Week, an annual ac-

during the week of Valentine day, be- 
gan on February 9 and will terminate 
on Sunday, February 15. 

It is the custom that each day and 
dormitory woman student draw, by 
lot, the name of one girl, for whom 
she does any kindness she can. Hence 
strange gifts, emptied wastebaskets, 
and room service have been some of 
the favors received. Since names were 
exchanged within the dormitories each 
of the halls will hold its own tea as 
the culmination of Heart Sister Week.

Jane Stabley Announces 
Plans For Delphian Dance 

Jane Stabley, Anniversary President 
reports that the plans for the Del- 
phian Anniversary dinner dance to be 
held February 28, at Hotel Abraham 
Lincoln, Reading, are moving along 
very rapidly and all final arrange- 
ments have been made. A number 
of the alumni are expected back for 
the affair. Due to a conflict in dates, 
Frank Taylor will be unable to furnish 
the music for the dance but Jack 
Heath of Reading has been secured 
for the occasion. The president an- 
nounced that Miss Gillespie, Dr. and 
Mrs. Richie, Dr. and Mrs. Derickson, 
Dr. and Mrs. Stokes and Coach and 
Mrs. Intrieri will be the chaperones. 

A committee has been appointed to 
provide entertainment for those girls 
who do not desire to attend the dance. 

Miss Wood's Death 
Shocks L V Campus 

Miss Margaret Alice Wood, college 
nurse and instructor in hygiene, eco- 
nomics and political science, died on 
Saturday, February 7, at her home 
in Germantown, Philadelphia. Her 
death which followed a long illness 
came as a surprise to her numerous 
friends among students and faculty at 
Lebanon Valley College. She had been 
absent from the school since the 
Christmas holidays but the serious- 
ness of her condition was not realized. 
The funeral was held on Wednesday, 
February 11 at her home. A memorial 
service was conducted in the college 
chapel on Thursday morning. 

Miss Wood came to Lebanon Valley 
in 1932, when President Lynch and 
Dean Stonecipher assumed their posi- 
tions. Holding a bachelor's degree in 
science at Temple, she acted as col- 
lege nurse, dietician, instructor of 
hygiene, and dean of South Hall; in 
addition, she found time to earn her 
master's degree in political science 
at the University of Pennsylvania. 

Her experience, however, was not 
limited to the academic field. She 
served as a nurse overseas in World 
War I. In 1935 she undertook to re- 
lieve the departments of political 
science and economics by instructing 
classes in these subjects in addition to 
her previous positions. She also con- 
tinued her work toward a doctor's de- 
gree at the University of Pennsyl- 
vania. Only one thesis remained to be 
completed at the time of her death. 

Miller and Shay 
Represent College 
at Defense Meeting 

On Friday, January 30, the House 
of Representatives at Harrisburg, 
Pa., was the scene of a session of the 
Pennsylvania State Council of De- 
fense which was attended by repre- 
sentatives of more than fifty colleges 
and universities of Pennsylvania. 
Lebanon Valley was represented by 
Ralph Shay, student director of de- 
fense, and Professor Frederic Miller, 
faculty director. 

Dr. Arnaud Marts, president of 
Bucknell University and Chairman 
of the session, was introduced by Gov- 
ernor James. It will be remembered 
that Dr. Marts addressed the student 
body and faculty of Lebanon Valley 
on November 11, 1941. 

Some of the highlights of the meet- 
ing were revealed by Shay and Pro- 
fessor Miller: 

Major Shattic of the Federal Sel- 
ective Service Board emphasized the 
necessity of keeping men in college 
who will be needed in industry, public 
health, and specialized army service. 

Mr. Livengood, member of the State 
Council of Defense, urged the colleges 
to organize councils of defense. He 
stated that fifty councils have been 
organized at present, and that under 
the present plans insignia will be 
awarded to those who complete 
courses of training. 

Dr. Housler, chief of training, re- 
vealed that everyone needs basic 
courses in organization, first aid (10-

College Publishes 
1942<'43 Bulletin 

The 1942-43 Catalogue number of 
the monthly Lebanon Valley College 
Bulletin has been received by the 
Registrar and reviewed by the faculty. 
It will be ready for distribution among 
the students in the near future. 

The new catalogue records numer- 
ous changes which should be carefully 
noted. First of all the calendar of 
events has been drawn up in accord- 
ance with the emergency status of the 
educational program. It is subject to 
change whenever necessary. 

Second, there have been increases in

I. R. C. Discusses 

War In Far East 

The International Relations Club 
held its regular meeting Monday eve- 
ning, February 9, at seven o'clock. An 
historical survey of our relations with 
the Far East and particularly Japan 
was presented by Sam Beamesderfer. 
Bruce Souders then presented the cur- 
rent phase of the situation. Prof. Mil- 
ler also added some comments. A 
number of new books were received 
by the club from the Carnegie Endow- 
ment. These books are available for 
the use of the entire student body. 

The next meeting of the club will be 
held March 9 at which time the prob- 
lem of national defense will be the 
topic for discussion. 

Chemistry Club Discusses 
Composition of the Soil 

The monthly meeting of the Chem- 
istry Club was held on Tuesday even- 
ing, February 10, at 7:30 in the 
chemistry lecture room. The program 
featured Mr. James Scott, a metal- 
lurgist of the Bethlehem Steel Com- 
pany, as guest speaker. 

The program opened with the pres- 
entation of chemistry news items by 
Leroy Yeatts. Russel Horst discussed 
"The Chemistry of the Soil." He ex- 
plained the composition of the soil 
and described various methods of 
identifying soils. The guest speaker 
spoke about "Powder Metallurgy." 
Mr. Scott described the preparation 
of the powder and told of its applica- 
tions to modern industry, especially 
its uses in tungsten filaments, elec- 
tric light bulbs, and nickel magnets 
for radios. 

Chapel Poll

Geyer and Gockley Head 
List As Campus Celebrities 

On Friday, January 23, a poll of 
the students was conducted by the La 
Vie and Quittapahilla staffs. The lead- 
ers selected by this poll will appear in 
the leadership section of the 1943 
edition of the Year Book. The follow- 
ing persons were elected : Phoebe Gey- 
er, David Gockley, Jean Daugherty. 
Fredericka Laucks, Walter Ebersole, 
Joseph Carr, and Donald Staley. 

"Pete" Geyer was elected the out- 
standing woman leader. She was also 
elected outstanding woman athlete 
for the second successive year. She 
has been active as president of the 
Y. W. C. A. as well as a member of 
the W. S. G. A., the Green Blotter 
Club, the Life Work Recruits and

Regristrar Enrolls 
February Entrants 

As the second semester opened, 
five new students made their debut 
on the L. V. C. campus. It was also 
disclosed that there is a possibility 
of another student entering this term. 
These additions to the student body 
will help to offset the loss of students 
who failed to return for the second 
semester or who left the campus be- 
fore the close of the first term. 

Walter Beriont, a former high 
school student, who is taking advan- 
tage of the shortened college period 
set up recently by the administration, 
plans to major in chemistry. Dorothy 
Kishpaugh, a sister of Marjorie Kish- 
paugh who was graduated last June, 
is a transfer from the State Teachers' 
College at Indiana, Pennsylvania. She 
is a business administration major. 
The ranks of ministerial students 
have been augmented by Mark A. 
Mobley, who is a transfer from the 
State Teacher' College at Millersville. 
William Neville, a day student, 
comes as a transfer from Temple Uni- 
versity. Paul Shettel, Jr., son of Pro- 
fessor Shettel, comes to L. V. C. from 
the local high school. He also is en- 
tering under the new plan to accept 
high school seniors in February.

To The Editor 

Dear Editor : 

For the past three weeks, the fresh- 
men and sophomores of the dormitory 
of Lebanon Valley College have been 
trying to locate the steps which were 
rumored to lie somewhere along 
Sophomore-Freshman walk. Upper 
classmen tell stories of the time when 
a light actually cast its radiant gleam 
upon said steps. 

We realize the value of the Na- 
tion's temporary Blackout in times 
of emergency, but since no enemy 
planes have been sighted as yet from 
third floor observatory, we see no rea- 
son for taking these premature meas- 
ures against said emergency. 

We would be more than glad to 
offer our assistance as a dormitory, 
either financially or physically in the 
completion of this project. 

Hoping that I will be able to find 
the steps one more time in order to 
mail this letter. 

Very sincerely yours, 

A future crutch-bearer of L. V. C. 

P. S. You will also notice, providing 
you are equipped with a good flash- 
light, candle, or torch, that the bottom 
step of the lower staircase is still 
there, but one foot lower than intend-

What is to happen to our class or- 
ganization when the new accelerated 
courses are put into effect? Who is 
going to edit the yearbook? Who will 
be May Queen? What kind of grad- 
uation exercises will there be? 

Whatever are the answers, some rev- 
olutionary changes must take place. 

Looking into the future we pro- 
phecy that this 1942 commencement 
may be the last with all of the tradi- 
tional trimmings. Each student is 
going to be an individual bent only on 
receiving his diploma. The yearbook 
will be edited by students from the 
school at large and the May Queen 
will be chosen by some new method. 
It will be goodbye to class politics, 
junior proms, and freshmen rules. This 
staggered program is certain to make 
college students independent, free 
lance, and more intensely involved in 
their work. 


We, the faculty of Lebanon Val- 
ley College do hereby memorialize 
and express our profound regret 
over the death of one of our most 
esteemed colleagues. Miss Margar- 
et Alice Wood was notable for her 
courageous honesty, her unswerv- 
ing devotion to prinicple, and her 
keen intellect. As dean in charge 
of South Hall she inspired respect 
by her wise governance and effec- 
tion by her kindly heart. As a class 
room teacher her vigorous intel- 
lect combined with her breadth of 
experience made her an opponent 
of all sham and false sentimental- 
ity, and gave her discussions of 
social problems a realism that was 
scientific in more than the aca- 
demic sense of the term. Her ab- 
sence will be keenly felt by her 
students and colleagues alike; and 
the memory of the courageous 
fight of her last years will be an 
inspiration to all who knew her. 


The steps of North Hall were re- 
cently used by some unknown and ap- 
parently unsung males as a canvas 
for one of the most artistic and ori- 
ginal works of art the co-eds of this 
campus will ever see. We wish to pay 
a tribute not only to originality and 
talent of our unknown artist, but ven- 
ture our gratitude for the surprising 
recognition that has finally fallen to 
our sunken womenhood. These steps 
will be a memoriam to posterity for 
centuries to come of the admiration 
and respect by which the male stu- 
dents of our generation regard their 
lesser halves. This admiration and re- 
spect is rendered not to beauty of form 
or contour, but is a significant recog- 
nition of our inner intelligence and 
cultured souls. "Beautiful but dumb" 
can never be our label, for we are 
"the ugliest co-eds of the world." Let 
us pause on the sheer originality of 
that word "ugliest." What women 
could even expect the superlative from 
any night-crawling paint-oozing Ro- 
meo of today? The mystery surround- 
ing the ingenious plot of these cour- 
ageous artisans in braving the ele- 
ments in the dead of night to disguise 
their apparent humility and modesty 
has made each of them a super hero 
to every girl on campus, — second only 
to a three-year-old with red crayon 

As a reward for these scarlet let- 
ters of compliment, the co-eds of L. 
V. are prepared to cheerfully and un- 
reservedly recommend any of these 
self-appointed connoisseurs of aesthe- 
tic values as honorary members of The 
Society for the Elevation of all Ci*eep- 
ing Things. 


By one who realizes that even the lit- 
tle big boys pull pigtails just to 
hear the screams. 

The Y. M. C. A. will furnish en- 
tertainment either in the form of 
an ice-skating party or dance on 
both Friday and Saturday nights, 
February 13 and 14. Listen for an- 
nouncements as to time and place. 

On February 13, at 8:15 P. M. 
the Community Concert Association 
will present the Cleveland Sym- 
phony Orchestra conducted by Ar- 
thur Rodzinski. Hilde Somer will 
be the guest soloist. The concert 
will be held in the McCaskey Sen- 
ior High School, Lancaster.

ingenue around whom the love inter 
est centered. Gen was so much more 
than just a pretty young girl that 
decorates a stage and lets everybody 
around her do the acting, she poured 
more emotional feeling into the role 
than is usually seen in this type. Marv 
Jane Fulton disappointed no one. Her 
part was similar to that which she 
had in "What Every Woman Knows " 
but as the frivolous, scatter-brained 
Mrs. Keefe she was even better than 
she was in her former role. She ha« 
added quite a bit of artistic technique 
to her original interpretation of a 
wealthy middle-aged woman. She re- 
ceived one of the loudest ovations of 
the evening when she swooned on a 
sofa when the identity of the owl was 
revealed. Her efforts in the last act 
to vamp Bart Jessop was a scene that 
was the heighth of comedy. The third 
member of the feminine trio was Katy 
Dunkle who took the part of vivacious 
modern Kay, the girl who had all the 
answers. In spite of the "cuteness" of 
most of her lines Katy had a real 
problem in putting them all over since 
there were so many wise-cracks in her 
speeches that some of them were quite 
stereotyped. But she handled them 
beautifully with an ease that made 
them all go over with the necessary 
zing. She possessed a stage presence 
that made her stand out and appear 
absolutely at home although this is 
Katy's first real debut also, although 
she appeared in one-act plays before. 

The outstanding scene of the play 
was the scene of the murder. Both 
Howard Paine and Lloyd Crall do 
their best acting here. Up until this 
point Holbrook has appeared as a 
distinguished elderly man who is nec- 
essary to certain parts of the story, 
but he doesn't particularly impress 
us in the midst of the other more col- 
orful actors. Driscoll too had been 
considered as a sort of semi-comic 
character (the mustache made a strik- 
ing profile!) whose presence seemed 
quite negligible. But suddenly as the 
lights of the room are slowly dimmed 
he changes into a sinister stranger. 
He deliberately discusses his premedi- 
tated murder with his victim as the 
drug he has administered begins to 
take effect. Holbrook grows sleepy and 
finally drops down behind the desk 
competely out while the audience wait- 
ed in the grip of the only real mo- 
ments of suspense and horror m 


play. The murder is here interrup ^ 
by the entrance of Sayre and Kay a" 
not until they have left does Drisco 
finish his horrible work with a pa> 
of scissors. The dimming of the hg ' 
the crash of glass as Driscoll brea^ 
a window pane, and the unexpe^ 
entrance of the girls all add to 
effectiveness of this scene. ^

•^ks previous the Bears had humili- 
ated them on their home court by the 
founding score of 75-38. 

The game began slowly as neither 
team could find an opening to score. 
Finally after four minutes of ball 
ndling the Dutchmen broke the ice 
in Simth scored on a lay up shot. 
Jrsinus came back to tie it up, but 
pan Staley scored the first of what 
turned out to be a grand total of 19 
oints when he dropped a one-handed 
left shot a la Mease style. From this 
point on the Dutchmen with Staley 
aB d Kubisen scoring ran up an 11 to 3 
lead at the end of the first quarter. 
The Blue and White "rooting section," 
or rather what could be seen of it, 
seemed stunned at this sudden revers- 
al of form. The second quarter was 
a replica of the first with the excep- 
tion that the Bears did manage to 
come within 5 points of tying at in- 
termission. Late in the second stanza 
Staley injured his right elbow and 
was forced to leave the game. 

He returned at the start' of the 
second half and immediately dropped 
two long set shots to start hostilities. 
At this point the Bears became hot 
and midway through the final period 
managed to tie the count at 32 all. At 
this point Captain Ralph Mease, who 
had been held in check by close guard- 
ing, broke loose with three consecutive 
field goals which coupled with a sin- 
gleton by Staley sewed up the game. 
The Dutchmen succeeded in freezing

M'burg Overwhelms 
Dutchmen Quintet 
During Exam Period 

In the midst of examinations, the 
Dutchmen fell before the kick of the 
Muhlenberg Mules 57-34 last Monday 
evening before a slim home crowd in 
the spacious Lebanon High School 
Gymnasium. The game was not al- 
ways a bright picture for the Muhlen- 
berg basket tossers, however. For, in 
the first perod, the Valleyites assumed 
a 10-7 lead and appeared to be holding 
their own against the frantic Julian 

But the storm broke in the second 
canto when the visitors took command 
and dropped the ball through the hoop 
as they pleased and overcame the lead 
of the Blue and White courtsters. The 
Mules then went ahead to post a 17- 
16 advantage as the half-time buzzer 
sounded in the ears of the battling In- 
trieri men. 

The Muhlenberg aggregation really 
took to the woods with their big guns 
in the third chukker and scored at 
will. The home team was outscored 
41-10 in this quarter and trailed 40-29 
going into the final frame. The pace 
was not slackened in the last period 
as Trinkle and Cranprey continued to 
pour shot after shot at the bank 
boards to boost their team total to 57 
points as the final gun sounded. 

The accuracy of Muhlenberg at the 
foul line aided immensely. The Mules 
made 15 of 21 tosses from the charity 
stripe. Trinkle led the winners down 
the home stretch with a total of 15 
counters on 5 field goals and as many 
fouls. He was ably assisted by Cran 
sey with 11 points. Mease was high 
scorer for the night with 17 points 
while Staley and Kubisen had 6 and 
5 pointers respectively. Kubisen left 
the game early via the personal foul

Handball Playoffs 
Begin This Week 

The annual Men's Day-Student 
Handball tournament opened this 
week with eight players drawing 
Bye's under the drawing turned in by 
Bud Boltz. Champion Ralph Shay has 
been placed in the upper bracket but 
it is feared that he will receive stiff 
opposition from Wise, Muller, Pat- 
schke and Bamberger who are rated 
below him in that order. 

The only matches played thus far 
found Bruce Souders winning in 
straight games from Bob Whistler 
and John Bamberger defeated "Bad 
Boy" Hummel in an upset straight 
game victory. Bamberger in winning 
established himself as a threat in the 
tournament. He then went on to be 
the first player to enter the quarter- 
finals when he crushed Hauer 21-10, 
21-9 in what turned out to be merely 
a practice game for him. 

All first round matches must be 
completed this week with all quarter- 
finals to be completed by Wednesday 
of next week.

Teams Play First 
Games In Class 
Basketball League 

The Day Student Basketball 
League, being composed of class teams 
the second semester, displayed an un- 
usually fast and furious brand of 
basketball in the first week's play. In 
the fray on Wednesday noon, the 
Sophs required an extra period to eke 
out a 37-36 victory over the hard- 
fighting Juniors. The more fortunate 
Freshmen had a comparatively easy 
time as they racked up forty-five 
points on Monday to defeat the Sen- 
iors who only acquired thirty-two 

Off to an early lead, Coach Car- 
baugh's boys passed the upperclass- 
men dizzy and ran up eleven points 
to their opponent's four as the first 
quarter ended. The Juniors retaliated 
by outscoring them in both the second 
and third chukkers to bring the score 
to 22-21 with one period yet to go in 
the regulation game. At the end of 
this quarter both teams had thirty- 
three points, so a three-minute extra 
period was agreed upon. "Chic" Ed- 
wards put the Sophs in the front with 
a one-hand stab followed by Neville's 
foul shot and "Lefty" Little's steal- 
ing of the ball to put the Juniors 
ahead. Play was lively and fast feat- 
ured by "Ted" Bachman's double- 
decker from beneath the basket which 
proved to be the winning points. 

Captain "Lefty" Little and Neville 
of the Juniors led in the individual 
scoring but the team play of the un- 
derclassmen proved outstanding as 
eight of the nine players figured in 
the point column. "Chic" Edwards 
with 7 was in front of the pack, but 
we must not forget the two points 
"Steve" Metro, an ace Junior, donated 
to the Sophomore's winning cause 
when he tapped a rebound into his 
opponent's basket. 

John Yoder and Captain Fake ac- 
counted for nineteen and fifteen points 
respectively in the Freshmen's rout 
of the Seniors. The upperclassmen 
proved to be a second half team as 
they overcame a 25 to 9 deficit at 
half-time to come within thirteen 
points as they fell to defeat to the 
tune of 45-32. Captain "Bud" Boltz 
with fifteen and Shay with eleven ac- 
counted for all but four of the Sen- 
ior's points.

ginally scheduled. This change was 
found more convenient to both schools 
and was agreed upon in sufficient time 
to make the necessary arrangements. 
The Intrieri-coached men have been 
able to win but one game in league 
play. The sole victory was registered 
over Ursinus at Lebanon last Satur- 
day evening when the Valleyites ran 
wild after a strenuous week of exams 
to conquer the down-state five. 

The Blue and White Frosh will en- 
gage the Hershey Industrial School 
Cagers in the preliminary to the var- 
sity contest. The Industrial School 
boys will be hosts to the Frockmen on 
March 3rd at the Hershey school in a 
return engagement. The game was ar- 
ranged since Bucknell does not spon- 
sor a freshman quintet. 

Students will be admitted to the 
games by presenting their student ac- 
tivity cards at the gates with a photo- 
graph attached. The frosh will take 
the floor at 7:00 P. M. to engage the 
Hershey five and the feature attrac- 
tion of the card will get under way 
about 8:30 P. M.

Oh! Fight! Fight! Fight!

I Sports in Shorts I 

By Louise I 

On Monday night, the girls' basket- 
ball squad made up for time lost dur- 
ing exam week. A snappy workout 
on the gym floor served to whip into 
shape all the cramped limbs, sluggish 
pivoting, slackened speed, bad shoot- 
ing, etc., that resulted from a week 
of hitting the books instead of the 
ball. Tuesday evening witnessed the 
honor squad material hard at work 
on the basketball courts in the high 
school, hammering away in anticipa- 
tion of the game to be played on that 
floor on Thursday evening. 

Due to a change in the men's bas- 
ketball schedule, there is a slight over- 
lapping on Thursday evening, Febru- 
ary 12, as the girls will play Albright 
in the Annville High School gymnas- 
ium at 7:30, the same time the fel- 
lows meet a Bucknell quintet at Leba- 
non. The girls' game is their first this 
season, so it is difficult to make any 
predictions as to the outcome; how- 
ever, it is safe to say that the outlook 
is anything but pessimistic, as the in- 
terest in basketball has run high this 
year. A comparatively small number 
of last year's star courtwomen were 
lost through graduation, leaving such 
names as Klopp, Johns, Stabley, Bern- 
hard and others to fill the roster. In 
addition to the oldsters, the yearling 
crop includes girls whose records are 
not to be placed at nought. Brandt 
and Carper, of Palmyra, play an ad- 
mirable game, while Bush, Kintzel, 
and a number of other campus dwell- 
ers are a real boon to the team. 

Since this week's schedule is filled 
to the very brim, the inter-dorm 
league took a brief vacation; however, 
it is expected to make a comeback with 
renewed vigor by next Monday, when 
a game will be announced. To date, 
the Day Studentettes lead with two 
victories, no losses; South Hall and 
North Hall are on an even keel with 
one loss apiece, no victories, while 
West Hall has not yet had an oppor- 
tunity to open fire, due to the sprained 
ankle epidemic that has been holding 
that dorm in its clutches. 

Recreational Tournaments 
Begin in Y. M. C. A. Rooms 

David Gockley, Y. M. C. A. presi- 
dent announces tournaments in ping 
pong, pool, and chess to be conducted 
each evening between the hours of 
nine and ten in the Y. M. C. A. rooms, 
beginning as soon as the schedule of 
competitions is arranged. There will 
be prizes for the winning contestants.

WAA Amends Constitution 
To Admit Freshman Girls 

Since the W. A. A. is an organiza- 
tion of such a nature that freshmen 
are not qualified to be members until 
the end of the first year, the cabinet 
has seen fit to amend the constitution 
so that it provides for a number of 
the Freshmen class to represent the 
yearlings on the cabinet. President 
Holly appointed Jeanne Waller, Liz- 
zette Fisher, Helen Bush and Alma 
Brandt as a nominating committee. 
Elections will be held in physical ed- 
ucation classes and a freshman will 
be chosen by her classmates to repre- 
sent them in the athlete's realm.

men 18 to 50 years of age to become 
nurses' aides relieving trained nurses 
to serve with the army. The only re- 
quirements are a high school educa-

tion, and 80 hours of instruction — 35 
hours of theory and 45 hours of prac- 
tical application. 

Dr. Fredericks, director of the phy- 
sical fitness program, expressed the 
desire that all students be given a 
complete physical examination <and 
an effort be made to correct any de- 
fects. He suggested that physical ed- 
ucation classes be held an hour each 
day throughout each college year. 
There will be no military drill as in 
the last war. 

The Dean of Penn State urged a 
complete American unity in civilian 
defense and production. He recom- 
mended that the colleges devote their 
papers, chapel entertainments, and 
organizations to defense. The college 
councils of defense should provide for 
personal and campus protection and 
should reflect leadership in their re- 
spective communities. 

The University of Pennsylvania, 
Wilson College, and Haverford Col- 
lege were cited for having made the 
greatest strides in organizing and 
maintaining defense units.

In spite of staggering demands for telephone ser- 
vice, further expansion of telephone facilities is sharply 
curtailed by shortages of metals and equipment. There- 
fore, we must get the absolute maximum use out of the 
existing telephone plant. 

Every telephone user can help to keep lines open 
and speed the service by following a few simple 

1. Be sure you have the right number before you 
make a call. 

2. Don't ask "Information" for numbers that are 
listed in the directory. 

3. Answer all calls as quickly as possible. 

4. Be sure to "hang up" after each call. Don't let

Test Blackout 

A test blackout will be held at a 
designated time next week over all of 
Lebanon County. Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege will be included and the dormitor- 
ies and other college buildings will be 
expected to conform to regulations. 
The air raid wardens and their as- 
sistants will be given the proper in- 
structions and the student body as a 
whole will be informed in chapel of 
the date for the blackout. 

Dave Gockley, student director of 
the college Air Raid Warden unit, 
has announced several precautions to 
be observed by all students in event 
of an air raid. 

You, the student body, have the in- 
dividual responsibility of turning off 
your own lights, and then proceeding 
to the room selected in your dormitory 
as offering the most safety. You are to 
remain there unless notified otherwise. 
The "Y" room in the Men's Dormitory 
and the first floor of the three dormi- 
tories for women have been selected 
for this purpose. 

In event of an air raid while class- 
es are in session either during the 
day or evening, the students shall re- 
main in the classrooms. 

It is particularly stressed that 
everyone keep clear of the windows, 
especially since flying glass shatter- 
ed by an explosion exceeds the speed 
of a rifle bullet. 

The telephone is not to be used ex- 
cept by those authorized — keep the 
line open for urgent defense calls. 

Gockley stated that more definite 
instructions will be issued at a meet- 
ing to be held in Engle Hall prior to 
the test blackout scheduled for the 
near future. 

Friendship Project

Consideration • . . 

Clarification of the attitude toward 
the production of three-act plays dur- 
ing the remainder of the school year 
need be made due to the various inter- 
pretations which have been given to 
the Student-Faculty Council's resolu- 

On January eighth, LA VIE print- 
ed the resolutions recommended by the 
council for consideration of those 
groups to which they applied. At this 
time, because of the prospective de- 
fense organizations which would prob- 
ably require undivided attention and 
compulsory attendance at many hours, 
these representatives of the students 
and faculty judged that three-act 
plays would demand too much valu- 
able time and that they, too, would 
suffer because of interrupted re- 
hearsals and a lower standard for pro- 
duction. On this basis the group asked 
the matter to be seriously considered 
before plays were planned. 

By no means, are these resolutions 
rules. They are subject to change. 
Therefore, if, should more recent de- 
velopments prove the difficulties anti- 
cipated not the hindrance they were 
then deemed, three-act plays may cer- 
tainly be presented. 

It has been pointed out, no other 
social events have been curtailed. 
Plays have become well-warranted 
events of worth on our school calen- 
dar. The English department will suf- 
fer if this part of its program is dis- 
continued. It would not be fair if this 
part of extra-curricular life be cut 
out while all else rolls merrily along. 

We are giving the facts plainly. We 
hope that careful thought will deter- 
mine the policy the involved groups 
accept. Whatever action is taken the 
students may be assured that all sides 
of the question were taken into ac- 
count. It is just such careful consid- 
eration that the Student-Faculty 
Council aims to stimulate. 

In behalf of the entire student 
body of Lebanon Valley College, La 
Vie Collegienne extends to Dr. 
Clyde A. Lynch deep and sincere 
sympathy in his recent bereave- 
ment. It is with genuine feeling 
that it records the death of his 


greens from the blotter!) 

The Rhythm of Civilization 

By Aoidos 

The clap and clang of industry 
Is driving on incessantly, 
To twist and turn and forge and roll 
The steel that binds the nation's soul. 

No letup does the system know. 
As long as wars and armies grow 
The forges and assembly lines 
Go on, supplied by busy mines. 

Machines, they rest not nights nor 

The shifts of men may change in 

But not the turning of the wheels, 
As long as war the limelight steals. 

Then one day the war is o'er: 
The machinery is less rhythmical than 

Hesitating movements are felt in the 

The industrial brawn is becoming 

The numerous shifts of the men are 
not needed, 

Now that industrial booms have re- 
ceded ; 

The rhythm has grown to be heavier, 
slower ; 

Starvation, privation, and misery 

What formerly was brisk rhythm is 

now totally dead, 
Already that horrible beast called 

Panic is showing its head. 

All rhythm ends. 

A devastated world bends 

To disgrace, 


A nightmare 

Gradually the world emerges to a 

better fare. 
Panic, having spent its fury, didn't 


To stay any longer amid its work, 
And goes away, satisfied the world is 

Yet, somehow the nations arise again, 
To create a new rhythm and order, 

more sane 
Than they had enjoyed in other times, 
Preceding their previous bellicose 


The times are now peaceful, the 

rhythm is calm; 
Arts and science are serving as balm 
To a people, who sleep amid the rise

Democracy's Battle by Francis 


Whether you agree with the auth 
or not, you will certainly read his hot 
from cover to cover. The author t 
the book under review, an English^ 
gives the background against whU 
to "assess our dangers and our reason 
able hopes," a searching analysis of 
the forces within and behind Engl and 
and the British Empire, and states his 
belief in the future as follows: "Tj, 
future of civilization will be decided 
in the West and decided in a very es 
sential and explicit sense by what the 
people of Britain — and America ^ 
are willing to learn from the past and 
what they are ready to try to make 
of the future. For civilization doe-; 
not grow of itself. Stability and se- 
curity do not establish themselves of 
their own accord. Social justice does 
not fall unsought from heaven. They 
have to be fought for and thought for 
We are ready to fight. Are we ready 
to think?" 

Plan for Permanent Peace by Ham 

The author of this book was Eco- 
nomic Adviser to the German Foreign 
Office under the Weimar Republic. In 
his preface he states how he came to 
write of his past experiences and his 
hopes for the future. Part I, which is 
chiefly introductory, consists of a 
sympathetic interpretation of Ger- 
many's plight during the "reparations" 
period, with condemnation of the 
methods of Schacht and other Nazi 
converts. The real substance of the 
book is the proposal of a world bank 
as the solution of the problems of the 
future peace. It includes a review of 
conditions in Europe, the Far East and 
the Western Hemisphere. The two 
final chapters present various declar- 
ed peace aims, official and unofficial, 
and the author's conception of a 
"United States of the World." This 
book is therefore another contribu- 
tion to the continuing and continuous 
discussion of the future peace.

0efo?e Bucknell 

r^^e old second half jinx followed 
the B^ ue anc * White ccurt team again 


the result that they dropped a 

jf[ 2,9 decision to the Bucknell Bisons. 


Dutchmen enjoyed a 19-18 ad- 
jutage at half time as a result of a 
br illiant second quarter rally during 
^hich time they outscored the Bisons 


12-4 margin. 
The second half was only seconds 
when the Bisons swung into ac- 
tion They outscored the Blue and 
White 15-6 in the third canto to lead 
33-25- They further increased their 
sCO re in the final period by outshoot- 
ing the Valley 14-4. 

The game was a dismal disappoint- 
ment to the supporters of the Blue 
a nd White. Ragged play and consist- 
ant fouling again featured the con- 
test. Captain Mease scored 12 points 
to lead the Valley attack while Sny- 
der the visiting guard copped scoring 
honors with 17 markers. George 
Haines flashy forward and current 
high scorer of the league was held to 
ten points six coming in the last few 
minutes of play.

This coming Saturday the Flying

an effort to salvage something from 
a somewhat disastrous season on the 

When these two rivals meet com- 
parative scores mean very little, if 
anything at all and a victory over 
the fast-stepping Lions will go far 
toward salving the wounds suffered by 
the Dutchmen thus far this season. 

The Lions will present a fast, well- 
balanced quintet, led by Dick 
Shollenberger, last season's top 
scorer, in the Eastern Collegiate 
League. This season Shollenber- 
ger has been ably assisted by Hop- 
kins, all League Guard and Bob Sny- 
der, lanky Red and White center, 
funding out the first five will be 
Rhodes and Boltz, both dangerous 
borers. Against this array of talent, 
^°ach Intrieri will send Captain 
Me ase and George Smith at the for- 
Wa rd slots, Steve Kubisen at the pivot 
J°st and Staley and Matala in the 
ba ck court. 

in e Lions have dropped only two

that paid off in the final count. 

Ben Wasileski sparked the Blue

points to take scoring honors for the 
night, as Housel and Harriger lent 
timely assistance. The Spartans over-

Dutchmen Quintets, 
10 4th Cavalry Teams 
Play Games At Gap 

The varsity and the freshman bask- 
etball teams of Lebanon Valley jour- 
neyed to Indiantown Gap, Tuesday 
afternoon to do battle with two teams 
representing the 104th Calvary Regi- 
ment of the National Guard of Penn- 
sylvania. The personnel of the home 
teams was found to contain the names 
nf severa' ex-prof >«>-i(;r;:il playois and 
ex-collegiate performers. 

The visiting Valleyites took both 
contests by scores of 47-41 and 39-31, 
the varsity team taking the first fray 
and the Frockmen the second game. 
The varsity team was hard pressed 
in the first half and trailed by 23-21. 
The home team of Guardsmen falter- 
ed in the second half as Mease and 
Staley sprung into action. The home- 
sters put up quite a battle but were 
no match for the Blue and White ag- 

Ralph Mease took high scoring hon- 
ors for the afternoon with a total of 
15 counters on seven field goals and 
a low charity toss. Staley did fine 
work in the back-court and contrib- 
uted six goals from afield to the 
Dutchmen cause. Edwards and Dess- 
ton of the soldier outfit rang up 15 
and 10 points respectively to lead 
their team-mates in the scoring divi- 

The freshmen experienced little 
difficulty in emerging victorious with 
a 39-31 score reading in their favor. 
Harriger and Wasileski were the fair- 
haired boys for the yearlings. Har- 
iger, playing a forward position gain- 
ed a total of 20 points with nine field 
goals and two free tosses. Ben Was- 
ileski, the black-haired center of the 
first year squad, did yoeman work for 
the Frockmen under the bankboards 
and threw in four duces and three 
foul throws for an eleven point con- 
tribution to the Valley cause. 

Krilla and Yohn were the best bets 
for the losers in this preliminary 
game with 8 and 7 points respectively 
to their credit. Both games were 
rough contests with body contact at 
a new high. A low ceiling at the Gap 
Recreation Building handicapped the 
Dutchmen at the start.

Dorm League 
Opens Season 
In Fast Play 

Last Thursday afternoon the open- 
ing salutes were fired in the struggle 
for the intra-dorm league crown. In 
these first games of the '42 season we 
found the Frosh meeting the Juniors 
and the Sophomores taking on the Se- 
niors. In the opener a fast breaking 
aggressive freshmen club was victori- 
ous over a court-wise but under- 
manned junior outfit. 

By clever ball handling and accu- 
rate shooting the juniors showed the 
way in the first half of the fray. How- 
ever inspired by a pep talk by their 
coaches Racine and Beshore the fresh- 
men took the floor a different and de- 
termined ball club. At the end of the 
third period they had nearly pulled 
abreast of the smooth junior aggrega- 
tion. In the last quarter due to heated 
play two of the five junior courtsters 
left the contest via the personal foul 
route and the upper class team was 
forced to finish the game short hand- 
ed. Playing with only four men them- 
selves the freshmen made a garrison 
finish and took the contest going away. 

The score by quarters: 


Frosh 10 12 6 4 32 

Juniors 3 6 15 21 45 

Individual honors go to Withers and 
Broulator with thirteen and twelve 
points respectively and to Ventresca's 
excellent floor play. For the Juniors 
Newbaker was high man with nine 

In the nightcap the flashy sopho- 
mores nosed out the Seniors by a 42- 
37 count. This game was exceptionally 
clean and hard fought. With close 
guarding and cautious floor play 
standing out. In this contest three 
outstanding players were unveiled. 
Joe Carr was high point getter of the 
afternoon round when he split the 
cords just shy of a dozen times for 
a total of 22 points. However, he was 
pressed for these honors by "Herbie" 
Altman who rocked up nine double 
deckers and a foul for an afternoon's 
work. Also in the vanguard of the 
point getters was Smith who threw 
in half a dozen goals to aid the Sopho- 
more cause. The outcome of this tus- 
sle hung in the balance until the clos- 
ing minutes when Altman and Smith 
put the game on ice with a flurry of 
field goals. The defensive work of 
Schwalm, Wolf and Olenchuck were 
features of the P. M. contests. 

Score by quarters: 
Sophomores 4 10 10 13 

Seniors 9 8 10 15 

In the second brace of games in the 
intra-dorm league Monday evening the 
Seniors faced the Frosh and the Jun- 
iors engaged the Sophomores in cage 

In the opener the Frosh led the Sen- 
iors through three quarters only to 
falter in the last heat and go down to

Advance Tourney 

Play progressed into the second 
round of the Men's Day Student 
Tournament with Reber, Morey and 
Light gaining berths in the third 
round in the upper bracket and with 
Bamberger as the only one in the 
lower bracket to advance into the 
quarter finals. 

Earl Reber pulled a mild surprise 
in defeating Bob Uhrich 21-19 and 
21-7. Uhrich's game fell completely 
apart in the second game after he had 
put up a stiff argument in the first 
game. As usual laxidonical play led 
to Uhrich's defeat. Roger Morey after 
winning from default from Boltz, 
easily trounced Bruce Souders by 
scores of 21-6 and 21-9. Earl Light 
rounded out the bracket by downing 
"Kid" Swope 21-16 and 21-17. 

Scores first round: 
Uhrich defeated Kintzer, 21-15; 21-17 
Fake defeated Frantz, 20-22; 21-13; 

Shay defeated Troup, 21-11; 21-15 
Souders defeated Whistler, 21-2; 21-6 
Light defeated Yoder, 21-1; 21-1 
Bamberger defeated Hummel, 21-18; 

Scores second round : 
Reber defeated Uhrich, 21-19; 21-7 
Morey defeated Souders, 21-6; 21-9 
Light defeated Swope, 21-16; 21-17 
Bamberger defeated Horner, 21-11; 

a smarting defeat. The contest waxed 
hot and tempers were barely held in 
check, three men finally left the contest 
via the foul route. The Seniors mak- 
ing the most of all their opportunities 
blasted their opponents with a bar- 
rage of 17 points in the last frame 
and easily bested the underclassmen. 
Joe Carr was again the outstanding 
courtster with an aggregation of 19 
points which he scored with remark- 
able ease. Withers carried the brunt 
of the Frosh attack with 12 markers. 
Gockley's ball handling was a spar- 
kling feature of the Senior attack, 
while the floor play of "Fury" Fior-j 
ella and "'Honest John" Weisman is! 
deserving of much merit. 
Score by quarters: 


Seniors - 8 7 7 17 39 

Frosh 5 11 5 5 26 

The evening's finale featured the 
high flying Sophomores and the once 
beaten Juniors. The Juniors eager for 
victory played a sterling court game 
against a smooth working, fast break- 
ing, deadly accurate second year club. 
However, their fighting spirit was to 
be denied as Smith, Altman and Zerbe 
rustled the nets with a count of 7 
goals each and a quartet of fouls 
among them. This scoring power 
proved too great for the Juniors who 
themselves produced two sterling 
courtsters in Schmaltzer and Newba- 
ker who between them tallied 28 count- 
ers. The Sophomores were forced all 
out to trim the Juniors who were se- 
verely handicapped by the loss of their 
ace forward Beckner in a court scuf- 
fle. Your scribe was greatly impressed 
by the distinct incentive to win shown 
by all four clubs, and as always close 
rivalry still was high. However, we 
are sure all teams would appreciate a 
greater turnout of players. The games 
are capably handled and run off under 
the direction of "Mike" Intrieri.

Honor Squad Drops 
Game to Albright 
Lassies Last Week 

Last Thursday evening the Blue 
and White Honor squad acted as host- 
esses 'to Albright's coed basketball 
team on the Annville High School bas- 
ketball floor. The Albright girls down- 
ed our own crowd to the tune of 27- 
17. The first quarter witnessed Ginnie 
Bernhard sinking one basket, while 
Stabley did likewise and added one 
more points by means of a foul shot. 
In the same canto, Piatt of Albright 
rolled up five points with one field 
goal and three penalty shots, and Bom- 
gardner sank a one-point counter, 
bringing the score to 6-5 at the end 
of quarter one. 

In the second chapter, the teams 
each came out with eight more points, 
with Albright still leading by a one- 
point margin, with fourteen points to 
her credit. In the third quarter, Leba- 
non Valley's age-old rivals began to 
get an edge on the Blue and White 
gals. In a hard-fought period, Al- 
bright acquired four more points to 
the Valley's two. The final stanza saw 
the Red and White lassies really click- 
ing, and the Blue and White gals all 
worn out. The result: Lebanon Valley 
gained two points by means of Klopp's 
neat shooting from the foul line, while 
Albright went on a scoring spree to 
toss up four field goals and one char- 
ty shot. 

Among the Valley girls Jane Sta- 
bley stole the top honors with seven 
points, while Bobbie Herr followed 
closely with five counters. The remain- 
der of the points were divided equally 
among Klopp, Bernhard and Ginnie 
Stonecipher. The three reliables, Gey- 
er, Wilt and Witmeyer, held the guard 
section, with some relief offered by 
Frosh Alma Brandt. Albright's top 
notch scorer was in the person of a 
Piatt girl that accounted for fourteen 
of the opposition's points. This game, 
the season's opener, was a test for our 
girls, and it seems they didn't quite 
make the dean's list, but since the 
girls play for the love of the game, 
we'll let it go with a wish for better 
luck next time ! 

Incidentally "next game" will be on 
Friday, February 20, at Albright. The 
girls are getting their chance for re- 
venge, while rivalry is still hot so we 
can look for a victory from that quar-

vigor, when North Hall met Day Stu- 
dents, the latter coming through with 
70 points to triumph over the former

winners, Stonecipher and Carper play- 
ed an outstanding game contributing 
most of the total number of counters,

G. S. 0. To Attend 

Service Order Party 

The first of the G. S. O. activities 
will take place on Saturday night 
when fifteen girls from campus will 
go to the new USO building in Leba- 
non to participate in an informal 
gathering. Entertainment will consist 
of games and dancing under the direc-

Heminway is the student representa- 
tive of the organization. 

L. V. Sees "Winged 

A sound film, "Winged Horizons," 
will be presented to the Lebanon Val- 
ley students during an extended chap- 
el period on Friday, February 20. This 
motion picture was produced by the 
Transcontinental and Western Air, 
Inc. The 1:30 classes will be omitted 
to furnish time for this program. 

Watch, look, and listen for some 
announcement of activity on Satur- 
day night when the Y. M. C. A. 
promises a follow-up of its Valen- 
tine party. 

"They Live Forever," a new series 
on the CBS network designed to stim- 
ulate Victory-thinking in this country, 
took to the air Sunday, February 8. 
(10:30 to 11:00 P. M., EST.) 

This is Columbia's first series de- 
signed to show America on the offen- 
sive. Not a defense show, it is, rather, 
a testimonial from the American peo- 
ple to their heroic dead. It is a prom- 
ise that the murders at Pearl Harbor, 
the deaths at Manila and other scenes 
of action will not only be remembered, 
but avenged! It is a crystallization, 
in stirring dramatic form, of the thots 
and feelings and actions of a hundred 
and thirty-two million Americans at 

In no sense is it fictionalized. It 
names people, places, actual events. It 
tells why and for what the American 
people are fighting today. 

A program of actual happenings, 
"They Live Forever," presents first 
hand facts concerning the men who 
have already given their blood and 
lives in today's fight for freedom. 

In addition, it shows what the Am- 
erican people are doing — now — to re- 
pay the debt we owe the Axis powers 
with the compoupd interest President 
Roosevelt promised. 


Fred Allen, who toured all over 
Australia in the halcyon days of vau- 
deville, commented recently on the 
fact that every time that country won 
the Davis Tennis Cup, a World War 
followed. It's just an oddity that in 
1914 and 1939 this occurred. However, 
Fred adds, there are plenty of other 
curiosities he dug up while traveling 
"down under." In Australia, Fred 
says, there are more than 50 different 
kinds of kangaroos, including some 
that climb trees. In fact, the "blue 
flyer" is a kangaroo that can make 
forty miles an hour and travels in 
herds much bigger than the famous 
thundering herds of our buffalo of the 
Western Plains. A herd of these kan- 
garoos, Fred comments, would make 
New York's Times Square traffic seem 
like a deserted village. There are 
earthworms in Australia that meas- 
ure some six feet in length. And 
there is a 400-pound fish there that 
drowns if kept under water too long. 
For a topper, there is a marsupial 
"teddy-bear" which lives on about 50 
different kinds of eucalyptus leaves, 
never drinks water, catches colds, and 
is protected from shipment out of 
Australia by a national law.

The Soviet Experiment by Harry Best. 

So many books have been written 
either of violent denunciation of Sov- 
iet Russia or of unqualified praise 
that this sane evaluation is of partic- 
ular value in estimating the gains and 
losses to the Russian people in the 
revolution from Czarist Russia to the 
present regime. It is concerned chief- 
ly with internal developments. It was 
written before the invasion of Russia 
by Germany, which event might have 
modified somewhat some of the views 
expressed by the author. No one can 
read this book, however, without rec- 
ognizing that it is an able and honest 
commentary upon the Russian prob-

Day Students Wage 
Basketball Battles 

By virtue of a spirited second-half 
rally, the sophomores continued their 
winning streak when they downed the 
seniors to the tune of 41 to 24, Mon- 
day noon. The score stood at 16-all 
when the horn sounded for intermis- 
sion and then the underclassmen show- 
ed the effects of Coach Carbaugh's pep 
talk by racking up buckets right and 
left in that productive third chukker. 

"Chic" Edwards and "Bud" Boltz 
were tied for high-scoring honors with 
thirteen points each, while "Ted" 
Bachman helped the winning cause 
with five double-deckers. "Axer" Shay 
was held down to six points by the 
fine defensive play of the guards. The 
frequent substitutions into the sopho- 
more lineup proved to be the secret 
of victory as fresh men were constant- 
ly entering the fray. 

Captain "Lefty" Little's juniors 
knocked the freshmen from the un- 
beaten ranks as they pounded out a 
28 to 24 victory over the yearlings in 
their fracas Wednesday noon. Hocker 
proved to be the "big gun" in the at- 
tack with eight counters although he 
was outscored by Captain Fake of the 
losers who accounted for thirteen 
points. The upperclassmen led 
throughout the game but the frosh 
put on a last-minute rally which fell

Chief among the threads of interest

and "Red" Hollinger which, by the 
way, has returned to stalk the cus- 
tomary "quiet" of the Conserve. It 
seems that both of these gentlemen 
have boasted of their prowess among 
the nine-pins until they are thorough-

more was set as the place for revenge, 
but their fires were dampened when 
they found an alley with those sissy

one ce.n understand. Student tickets 
are being sold for thirty-five cents 
while fifty cents is the cost for others. 

Tl is s'nger of international fame, 
who is making his second appearance 
at Lebanon Valley, will present his 
concert of traditional Old English 
and American ballads in a refreshing- 
ly different manner. "He is a born 
actor" with a "priceless sense of hu- 
mor." Pcssessing a captivating per- 
sonality and being a most skillful in- 
terpreter, his entertainment is defi- 
nitely refreshing, informal, amusing, 
and instructive. 

Pinging from the time he raked the 
hay and milked the cows as a small 
toy until he went to college, it was 
apparent that he had that spark of 
the unusual. It was in college where 
he decided to make music his pro- 
fession. Receiving much encourage- 
ment from his professors, he set out 
for Europe in search of this career. 
He studied for a time in London. 
There he won high acclaim and was 
honored by being able to sing before 
Crown Heads in Europe. Later when 
he returned to America, he was invit- 
ed to sing for the President and Mrs. 
Roosevelt at the White House, and al- 
so for the Governor-General of Cana- 
da in Ottawa. On these occasions Merl 
Freeland was his accompanist. In ad- 
dition he has been soloist with many 
outstanding symphony orchestras in 
this country.

Senate President 
Transfers to Chicago 

A farewell party in honor of Ralph 
Mease was held in the Y Rooms of 
the Men's Dorm last Wednesday even- 
ing on the occasion of his leaving 
Lebanon Valley's campus Saturday. 
He will go to Chicago where he will 
enroll in the course in meteorology at 
the University of Chicago. He will 
be located at the university for nine 
months, then undergo a short period 
of training under the supervision of 
army officials, and finally will be sta- 
tioned as meteorologist at some army 
air base. 

Mease has been a student of high 
scholastic ability while at Lebanon 
Valley, specializing in chemistry and 
mathematics. He has been a prominent 
campus leader, acting as president of 
the Men's Senate this year. His prow- 
ess as an athlete has made him an in- 
valuable player on L. V. baseball and 
basketball teams.

Long May She Wave 

On this page is a poem written in 
tribute of the flag raising ceremony 
Lebanon Valley held three days after 
the entrance of the United States in- 
to war. This poem expresses the feel- 
ings of the majority who witnessed 
the inspirational service. 

Yet today where is "Old Glory?" 
For weeks students have been asking 
this question. Our Star Spangled 
Banner has ceased to adorn the cup- 
ola of the Administration Building. 
We can conceive of no satisfactory 
explanation yet we do not wish to 
criticize without knowing if we are 
justified in so doing. La Vie will be 
gratified if it may place the reason 
before the students. 

We feel that student sentiment does 
wish to see the Stars and Stripes 
waving, and continuously waving, 
over the campus.

Once again the choice songsters of 
L. V. C. have returned to their home 
ground. They have given a week of 
valuable time plus endless hours of 
practice to perfect their work. Accord- 
ing to reports the audiences received 
them well. 

How does Lebanon Valley receive 
them? Does it give them credit for 
being ace advertisement? Does it re- 
lieve them of interfering duties? 
Does it let them know how much their 
work is appreciated? 

Whatever the manifest attitude 
may be, we verbally praise Professor 
Rutledge and every one of his Glee

All members of La Vie staff are 
expected to attend a meeting in

In order that Lebanon Valley 
news be received by men in the ser- 
vice, La Vie requests that all per-

CAGEY CAMPUS-CUTTERS It was most amusing to see Keller's 

and Daugherty's consternation when they realized their campus-cutting 
was going to bring them face to face with Dr. Lynch who had gone via 
the path ----- slowly but perfectly obviously they lengthened their 

strides and bounded into the dorm self-consciously naughty! 


FACULTY FUN Dr. Wallace presented a charter for the New Society 

for Grandfathers at the last faculty meeting - - - - especially designed 

to accommodate Dr. Lynch P. S. Dr. Stokes was rejected because 

of lack of credentials. 

TWO-FACED CLOCK - - - - In an evening class when Mrs. Stevenson asked 

the time one of the women said 'twas 9:05 After class dismissed 

the informee discovered it was an hour earlier Had not an 

apology been forthcoming maybe no one would have been the wiser. 

UNCLE JOE WINS AGAIN the photographer wanted Carr to 

pose with a cigarette but time 'n time again a flat NO! was the 

answer - - - - and so they negotiated a compromise in the form of a 
pipe - - - - much more befittin' a he-man, don'tcha think? 

MUCH ADO ABOUT WHAT-TO-DO Zimmie and Shelley spent all 

Saturday night trying to decide what to do Saturday night seems 

like he finally decided it's so nice to have the "Y's" usually solve 

that little problem. 

PATTER our humblest apologies to Daisy Maigh for misspelling her 

name last week — she's certainly most exceptional in every way - - - - 
Doris Smith howled when the waiters cornered her and plaited her 
mane - - - - Ruthie Wix is all a-twitter 'cause her bewinged hero is 
coming home for a few days — we'll all be glad to see that Zentmeyer 
boy — mighty proud are we - - - - Leah Foltz has a beautiful sparkler 

on the right finger— does it mean what we think it does? 

Gracie Spangler just aches 'n aches from walking back from the water 
works — but Kubby must have his road-work - - - - no new couples 
budded out of the Glee Club tour — too bad! — but from all accounts 

Jess and Red had themselves a time that makes three West Hall- 

ers who have up and left us — Higby, Penny, and Dottie Campbell — we 
hated to see them go Dottie Jean had been fishing for her knit- 
ting at the game — but we'll wager that was only when "Moe" wasn't 

in sight — which reminds us, good luck to you at Chicago, son 

most of the May belles wouldn't believe it when they heard they'd been 
elected — modest maids, these seniors - - - - prexy "Red" Cross thinks 
something should be done for Red Cross, so Clio gals are going to make 

some afghans — a patch-a-day policy would surely get results 

Katy Dunkle and Don are seeing more and more of each other — cute, 

"SHE DON'T WANNA" Davy revived that little number early in the 

season — in fact, 'twas quite the rage among her North Hall cohorts 

now you'll be hearing it at the P-Way any day and all day 

_ . we could have done a better job of recording, though - - - - - 

but to get to the point, do you mind if we plagarize thusly: 

I'm a nervous wreck. 

What can you expect? 

When tidbits for this column

From the Wings 

On Tuesday night eighteen members 
of the Wig and Buckle club made their 
first trip this year to see "High Tor" 
at the Harrisburg Community Thea- 
tre. Last year about the same number 
attended this group's production of 
"Our Town." Both expeditions were 
so successful that we wonder why 
there can't be more than one such trip 
during the school year. It seems to me 
that there really is a need for fre- 
quent play attendance among a stu- 
dent body that produces as many 
plays as we do. Such experiences give 
inspiration and stimulate enthusiasm 
more than any other method does! 
Now that we are going ahead with 
our full schedule of plays after al- 
most missing out on the two society 
plays, we should have an even greater 
urge to make these two really polish- 
ed products in all phases of produc- 
tion. The Junior class made a good 
start with its new stage and by its 
choosing a vehicle that fitted available 
talent. It was the enthusiasm of the 
greater part of the Junior class and 
their practical ideas that made the 
difference in this play. 

But to get back to "High Tor". . . 
it's not easy to present a Maxwell 
Anderson play and especially this one. 
There are conditions that are quite 
different from the ordinary run. For 
instance, the scenery is very unusual ; 
the dialogue is difficult because it is 
chiefly poetry; and, finally, there is an 
incongruous mixture of characters 
that must blend perfectly to be at all 
effective. "High Tor" is the name of a 
mountain that belongs to a young man 
who has such a spiritual attachment 
for it that he refuses to sell to a 
couple of crooked contractors who are 
willing to buy at any price. There is 
a legend that Henry Hudson and a lit- 
tel band of followers were stranded on 
this peak which makes the place sac- 
red to its young Dutch owner. During 
the night the graves of these six men 
and one woman are washed open by a 
storm and the phantoms roam over the 
mountains. As in the more familiar 
"Berkley Square" the hero falls in 
love with the ghost of a girl of another 
century. In the morning > the phan- 
toms go back to their graves and the 
young man decides to sell "High Tor." 
He does this on the advice of an old 
Indian and thus gives in to the ad- 
vance of industrialism in the wilder- 
ness. The top of the mountain sur- 
rounded by clouds against a back- 
ground of a changing sky was the one 
setting throughout the play. In the 
second act a giant steam shovel is 
hung against the sky. The whole effect 
was odd and unreal but very impress- 
ive. The brilliant costumes of the 16th 
century characters made beautiful 
splashes of color against this back- 
ground and the lights followed every 
changing mood in the speech and ac- 

All of us who were there enjoyed it 
thoroughly although there was enough 
difference of opinion to make conver- 
sation all the way home. 

We just received news that Cheryl 
Crawford will produce Sir James M. 
Barrie's "A Kiss for Cindrella" with 
Luise Rainer and Ralph Forbes as 
the stars. It opens on Tuesday even- 
ing, March 10, at the Music Box Thea- 
tre. Anyone who plans to be in New 
York during the run of the play can 
get tickets with a 25 per cent reduc- 
tion by contacting La Vie Collegienne.

The Sun Is My Undoing 

Marguerite Steen 

The death of the richest man in 
Bristol, in the great days of sailing 
ships, caused a scandal that was to 
last for a hundred years. "It sent a 
prodigious fortune rolling about the 
globe ... it enriched a rogue, impover- 
ished a virtuous family, and lost a 
girl her lover ... it hummed across 
the high seas, it rustled in secret 
chambers, it was mumbled across 
council tables. . ." As it spread thru 
time and space and the lives of men 
and women, daring and adventure 
went with it. The Sun Is My Undoing 
is a story on the heroic scale, a chron- 
icle that lifts the reader out of his 
own world and sweeps him on breath- 
lessly for 1,200 crowded pages.

s< * coS t downed the Lebanon Valley 
^urt team 50-44 on Tuesday evening 
°fter the Dutchmen had held a one 
* int advantage at the beginning of 
K fourth quarter. The Bullets were 

n dicapped by the absence of two of 

• r dependable performers who were 
•(jelined with injuries, nevertheless, 

-jeat battle was given by the visi- 
tors in every m i nu te of the contest. 

G-burg opened the game with a 
barrage of shots at the hoop which 
found their mark. The Valleyites re- 
taliated in like fashion but lacked 
efficient goals to tie the Bullets as the 
first quarter ended. At this point the 
B l ue and White aggregation trailed 
14-9. Mease found the range in the 
second canto and led a successful Val- 
ley rally that found the score tied 
a t 22-22 as the intermission period 
was reached. 

A determined Dutchmen five took to 
the boards in the second half to throw 
back assault after assault of the 
G-burg squad. The latter team, how- 
ever, was able to penetrate the de- 
fenses of the Intrieri-coached men to 
ring up 16 points. The visitors were 
on the short end of a close 39-38 score 
as the fourth period began. 

The Gettysburg club was not to be 
denied in the last quarter, however, 
and held the desperate Blue and 
White courtsters at bay while sending 
a quintet of shots into the net. Mease 
who had gained many of the points 
for the homesters was well guarded 
and was unable to get a decent shot 
at the bankboard in this chukker. The 
Bullets outscored the Valley team 12-5 
to take the contest by a 50-44 score. 

Mease, who was playing his last 
game before the heme crowd before 
leaving the campus, was high scorer 
for the evening with 21 points to his 
credit. Kubise^ the agile Valley cen- 
ter, ably assisted the Blue and White 
leader with 9 counters. The top men 
for the victorious Gettysburg colle- 
i gians were Drako and Welliver who 
each rung up 12 points for their cause.

Frockmen Upset 
Lion Cubs; Lose 
To Hershey Team 

The Valley's first year passers came 
out even in a pair of games played 
over the week-end, winning over the 
Albright Cubs 30-28 and losing to the 
Hershey Junior College lads 46-42. 
The latter game played on the Ann- 
ville High School court was a hard 
one to lose as the cards turned 
against the Frockmen only in the last 
few minutes of the game. Schreiber, 
accounting for 8 two-pointers and one 
free chuck, was the big gun for the 
Frosh with Beshore working smooth- 
ly in the back court. 

At the other game played as a pre- 
liminary to the varsity contest on the 
Northwest Junior High School court 
in Reading, Coach Frock's Freshmen 
pulled one of the biggest upsets of 
the current court season when they 
snapped the nine game winning 
streak of the Albright College year- 
lings with a 30-28 decision. 

Journeying to Reading with the 
minimum of only five players due to 
a seige of injuries that recently 
struck the squad, the Valley mentor 
presented a well-planned attack that 
saw this short-handed squad turn in 
their best performance of the season 
to date and gain the plaudets of the 
large crowd that had assembled to 
see Albright make a double kill. 

Playing a deliberate and sure-pass- 
ing game, the yearlings took a 2-0 
lead in the first minute of play and 
only once were on the short end of the 
score when in the opening minutes 
of the second half Albright went out 
in front 13-11. 

With Ben Wasileski scoring three 
field goals, John Schreiber chalking 
up three points and Lloyd Housel 
coming through with one two-point- 
er the Lebanon Valley Frosh were 
able to hold the taller Albright team 
to a 11-11 deadlock in the f r r~,t half. 
After the intermission Albright took 
a momentary lead on Pushman's long 
shot but the Frockmen came back and 
tallied 12 points in quick succession to 
lead 23-20. With Wasileski and 
Schreiber hitting the hoop in order the 
lead was increased 27-20 with three 
minutes remaining to be played. Al- 
bright staged a desperate last min- 
ute surge but clever ball handling on 
the part of Beriont, Housel, and Was- 
ileski enabled the Valley to hold onto 
their slim margin and register the 30- 
28 upset.

opposition, it was still going strong, 
tossing in four field goals to add 
eight counters to their already mount-

little use to the fatigued Valleyites as 
it served only to gain one lone point, 
while Albright again came through 
with two field goals and the same 
number of successful foul shots. 

Stonecipher accounted for one more

points, while Klopp, Kintzel, Herr and

Sophs Hold Lead 
In Intra<Mitral 
Dormitory League 

In the third round of play in the 
intra-dorm play on Thursday last, the 
Juniors forced the Seniors in a cage 
fiasco and the Freshmen battled the 

In the first of the afternoon con- 
tests the Juniors fairly snowed under 
the Seniors with a score of double- 
deckers. Schmaltzer led the Junior 
parade with 16 counters to his cred- 
itj while Gockley and Carr carried the 
brunt of the Senior attack with 19 
points for a combined afternoon's 

The Seniors were never really with- 
in striking distance, as the other Jun- 
ior coursters pkyed their parts of a 
supporting cast very well and at times 
forced Schmaltzer to share the lime- 
light by their brilliant defensive 

Only a sprinkling of fouls were 
called during this tiff as it was clean- 
ly played but bitterly fought. 

In the second encounter of the af- 
ternoon scuffles, the Freshmen took 
on the hitherto unbeaten Sophomores. 
While at times the gym seemed to be 
housing a battle royal, these periods 
were clouded over by the brilliant 
playing of the first and second year 

Led by Tony Ventresca the Fresh- 
men went all out to clip the wings 
of the high flying Sophomores. Al- 
though forced out of the contest via 
the foul route Tony was high man in 
the scoring department with ten 
notches. Those who witnessed this 
contest saw unfolded before them a 
display of rare courage by Bill Rumpf 
who although he fractured two bones 
in his right hand, remained in the 
contest despite the pain his injured 
member gave him and his 8 points

Reports from the handball court in- 
dicate that play in the singles tour- 
nament has advanced to the semi-fin- 
al round. Only two players, Shay and 
Morey remain undefeated in the upper 
bracket while four contestants Wise, 
Patschke, McFerren, and Bamberger 
have played without losing in compe- 
tition to date. 

Sixteen men have indicated their 
willingness to participate in the pro- 
posed doubles tournament. The pair- 
ings have been made for the event and 
results will be rolling in as soon as 
the champion is decided in the singles 

In the upper bracket Shay defeat- 
ed Reber 21-6 and 21-3 in a stiffly 
contested match to earn the right to 
meet Morey in the semi-final round. 
John Henry Light had fallen victim 
to Morey by scores of 22-20, 11-20 
and 21-17 in a quarter final battle. In 
the lower bracket the semi-final con- 
testants have not been decided upon 
as yet since neither of the two quar- 
ter-final matches have been played 
at the time we went to press. A real- 
ly good fray is expected when Pat- 
schke and Wise meet to decide who is 
to have the right to meet the winner 
of the McFerren-Bamberger meeting. 

The results are: 

Second Round: Shay defeated Fake

1 Sports in Shorts I 

I By Louise § 

On Tuesday afternoon at 4:30, the 
Women's Inter-Dormitory League 
checked off another game, with South 
Hall triumphing over West Hall. The 
score was the same as that of the 
Honor Squad game with Albright, 28 
to 12. 

It was decided at this game to com- 
bine North and West Halls into one 
aggregation to oppose Day Student- 
ettes and South Hall, thus reducing 
the number of teams from four to 
three. It seems that neither North 
nor West Hall alone has a strong 
enough team to hold up those two 
corners of the quadrangle, so the log- 
ical conclusion is a triangle. This ar- 
rangement will serve to create keener 
competition and consequently more 
interest in the game. 

As to the game on Tuesday, there is 
little to say. Pete Geyer played her 
usual outstanding game in guard po- 
sition, while West Hall's other recov- 
ered hobbler, Helen Bush, joined Mar- 
ian Leininger to roll up the points for 
West Hall. Marjorie Holly came from 
South Hall, quite prepared to take a 
guard spot, but turned in a commend- 
able performance as forward. (What 
versatile people!) Stabley, too, toss- 
ed in a significant number of field 
goals. Ehrlich held down the guard 
position with her consistent technique. 
With this victory to South Hall's 
credit, the league stands thus: Day 
Students, followed by South Hall, and 
the North-Westerners in the cellar. 

Gettysburg Quintet 
Take Measure Of 
Yearling Team 46-40 

The Gettysburg frosh basketball 
team eked out a six point victory 
over the first year Blue and White 
court squad by virtue of a last quar- 
ter spurt after the Valley squad had 
gone ahead with a one-point lead 
shortly before the game ended on 
Tuesday evening. The visitors played 
a cool and sturdy game to emerge vic- 
torious by a 46-40 score. 

In the first period the visiting ag- 
gregation had difficulty in finding the 
range but still managed to hold the 
edge over the Frock-coached men. The 
Builets managed to increase their lead 
to a six point margin in the second 
canto when Ehrhart, Gettysburg for- 
ward slipped away from the Valley 
defenders to drop several shots in the 
hoop with uncanny accuracy. The 
leader of the G-burg attack garnered 
a total of 12 points in the first half. 
Freedman, ex-William Penn star was 
unable to reward the many fans who 
had travelled to Lebanon to see their 
fellow townsman amaze the Dutch- 
men followers with his hot hand. How- 
ever, Ben Wasileski proved more than 
a match for the G-burg forward who 
had been declared an A-l find by some 

A tit-for-tat game developed in the 
earlier portion of the third frame but 
the visiting fireman held the upper 
hand on the floor with a 13 point ad- 
vantage as time was running out in 
this chukker. Wasileski, Schreiber and 
Howel brought the Dutchmen to life 
just before the end of the third period 
with several fine set shots. Schreiber 
renewed the attack going into the 
fourth period with splendid help from 
Wasileski. After the Valleyites had 
gained a one-point lead, the tall black 
haired Blue and White Center had 
committed his fourth personal foul. 
Hen Brehn, coach of the Bullet year- 
lings allowed Wasileski to continue 
play since Coach Frock had only car- 
ried five courtsters on this trip. The 
visiting coach received a hand from 
the crowd for this display of sports- 

The Frockmen went completely to 
pieces at this moment and saw the 
Gettysburg team drop a foul and sev- 
eral field goals through the net to 
defeat the Blue and White squad 46- 
40. Ehrhart was the best bet for the 
visiting first year men with 16 points 
to his credit. Schreiber and Wasileski 
were the top scorers for the Dutch- 

Lions Triumph Over 
Dutchmen As Mease 
Scores 33 Pointers 

If there is such a thing as a moral 
victory the Flying Dutchmen of Leb- 
anon Valley College deserve a claim 
to it when, led by Capt. Ralph Mease, 
and playing an inspired brand of bas- 
ketball, they dropped a 64-58 decision 
to the Albright Lions at Reading in 
one of the most sensational games 
seen around these parts for many a 

Trailing 9-0 after four minutes of 
play, the Blue and White suddenly 
snapped out of the lethargy in which 
they played for a better part of the 
current season to throw a scare into 
the pennant-hopeful Lions. 

The dazzling one man exhibition 
presented by Mease was the outstand- 
ing factor. The blond leader, after 
having trouble getting started dunk- 
ed five dueces and two charity tosses 
in the latter stages of the first half 
to give some hint of what was com- 
ing in the latter stages. Albright, 
after getting off to a 19-9 lead in the 
first period with Rhodes and Shollen- 
berger leading the attack had to bat-

Sophs Hold Lead 

Continued from Page 3 

was one of the determining factors 
in the Frosh victory. A vote of cred- 
it is due to coaches Racine and Bes- 
hore who with a clever defense were 
able to bottle up the Sophomore scor- 
ing aces Altman and Smith and hold 
them to a combined effort of 13 points. 

On Monday of this week a pair of 
contests were featured in our gym. 
In these sets the Frosh were match- 
ed with the Juniors and Seniors took 
on a flashy Sophomore club. 

In the first fracas of the evening 
the Juniors reciprocated previous 
treatment and nipped the Frosh 42 to 
36. This was a well played contest 
with the Juniors, however, leading 
throughout. The Freshmen were able 
to really threaten the Juniors' lead 
only once when at the opening of the 
third period a Freshman goal brought 
the score of 20-19. However, this ef- 
fort was quickly subdued by a flurry 
of Junior scores and they were able 
to hold a plucky Frosh club at bay by 
their neat ball handling. 

Withers captured scoring honors in 
the opener with a tally of 16 points 
with a half dozen neatly scored goals 
and a quartet of fouls. 

Beckner and Schmaltzer shared 
high scoring for Juniors with equal 
efforts of a dozen points apiece. 

In the nightcap the Sophomores and 
Seniors were featured in perhaps the 
best played contest in these early 

In this contest the league's scoring 
aces engaged in a personal duel and 
as these two, Carr and Altman, pour- 
ed in steady streams of markers the 
lead changed hands many times. Both 
men hit the magic circle 10 times 
from the field and "Sharpy" Carr 
nosed out "Herbie" for top honors by 
dropping a quintet of charity tosses 
to the latter's four registers. 

Earning merit by their outstanding 
floor play and defensive work were 
Wolfe and Smith for the Sophs; Reed 
and Olenchuck took care of this de- 
partment for the Seniors. 

This game was not decided until 
the final minutes when the clock stop- 
ped a Senior rally and the Sopho- 
mores racked up their third win of 
the campaign.

Seniors Lose Again 
As Day Students 
Finish First Half 

Those mighty Juniors had "hot 
hands" Monday when they bowled 
over the Seniors by a 74 to 28 count. 
Five of the underclassmen were in 
the two-digit column as they romped 
to an all-season high score over the 
hapless Seniors who have yet to 
place in the win column. "Steve" Met- 
ro led the pack of point-getters with 
eighteen, followed by Captain "Lefty" 
Little's fourteen, Heagy's and Nev- 
ille's twelve apiece and Yeatt's ten 
counters. "Back-court" Uhrich turned 
to forward for a short time to score 
four double-deckers. 

Captain "Bud" Boltz and Shay led 
the losing attack with eleven points 
each while Morey used his fine defen- 
sive tactics to no avail. 

In the final game of the first half 
the Frosh tarnished the hitherto-un- 
blemished record of those high-riding 
Sophs with a stinging 31-25 defeat. 
Play in this fray was heated with 
twenty-one fouls being called for in- 
fraction of the rules. These converted 
fouls proved to be the margin of vic- 
tory for the yearlings as they were 
outsccred eleven to ten in goals from 
the field.

tie desperately to protect that lead in 
the second canto and just managed to 
walk off the floor at intermission with 
a 31-25 lead. 

The Lions however, came back 
strong in the third quarter, and by 
playing a steadier game increased that 
lead to 50-38 in the third session. 

At this point Capt. Mease took over 
and aided by George Smith and Nick 
Dorazio they outscored the home- 
steaders 21-14 in the final session, 
only to fall 6 points short of the most 
dramatic upset in years. Mease ac- 
counted for 21 points in those hectic 
last twenty minutes of play, to bring 
his log for the evening to 33. He 
sacrificed three foul shots in the last 
period in an effort to score full goals 
which would close the gap and also 
had another "one-hander" taken from 
him on an officials verdict of "step." 

The pace from the beginning was 
furiously fast. The Lions presented 
a fast breaking aggregation which 
took advantage of all opportunities in 
the early stages of the game to run 
up an imposing lead. Shollenberger, 
Rhoades, Hopkins and Boltz all hit 
double figures in the scoring column 
with the first named scoring 19 points. 
The Lions incidentially scored 16 
points on fouls and both L. V. guards 
were forced to leave the game in the 
final period. 

At the close of the game Mease 
was given a tremendous ovation by 
the 2,000 spectators who crowded the 
Northeast Gym to witness the en- 
counter. It was by far his most sen- 
sational showing in four years of top- 
notch basketball at Lebanon Valley, 
and if he leaves school to carry on 
for the U. S. Government in the lab- 
oratories he can be sure that we who 
remain here shall not forget his cour- 
ageous play in this somewhat disas- 
trous season. 

Alma Brandt was selected by the 
Women's Athletic Association cabi- 
net as the freshman representative 
in this group.

Valley Debaters 
Discuss Labor Laws 
At Nearby Colleges 

Lebanon Valley College's debating 
season opened on Monday, March 2, 
a t 7:00 p.m., when Geraldine Huss 
a nd Esther Zandel upheld the nega- 
te in debate with Western Mary- 
land College. The question of debate 
was: Resolved, that the Federal Gov- 
e mment should regulate by law all 
| a bor unions in the United States. 

The L. V. C. women's team were op- 
posed by the men's team of Western 
Maryland when they met the men on 
their home ground in Westminster, 
Maryland. It was a non-decision de- 
bate conducted with five-minute re- 
buttals by each side. 

On Tuesday, March 3, the affirma- 
tive team, composed of Mildred Cross 
and Mary Mehaffy met the Ursinus 
team in debate at 3:00 p.m. in Col- 
legeville. Their question and plan of 
debate conformed with that of the 
initial debate. 

Dr. Milton Stokes is faculty adviser 
and instructor of these teams. Manag- 
ing the women's debating schedule is 
Mildred Cross while Donald Bartley 
is in charge of the plans for the men's 

The men's negative debate team will 
meet the affirmative team of Moravian 
College on Monday in Philo Hall to 
debate the question: "Resolved, that 
the Federal Government should regu- 
late by law all labor unions in the 
United States — Constitutionality con- 
ceded." Robert Whisler and Paul 
Lipsitz will represent Lebanon Valley. 
The time of the debate will be posted 
on the bulletin board.

Josef Hof mann 
Plays At Lebanon, 
March 12 

On Thursday, March 12, Josef Hof- 
mann, celebrated pianist, will appear 
at the Lebanon High School Auditor- 
ium under the auspices of the Leba- 
non Community Concert Association. 

Josef Hofmann is one of the most 
popular recitalists of the present day. 
He is the second artist of the series 
of three who are being sponsored by 
the association this year. Richard 
Crooks, tenor, has already presented 
his recital. Mr. Hofmann's ability as 
a pianist has been expressed in the 
words of one critic: "The most per- 
fect instrument for piano playing in 
the world — the hands of Josef Hof- 

Snap L. V. Coeds 
At U. S. 0. 

Last Saturday evening eleven girls 
from Lebanon Valley attended a dance 
sponsored by the United Service Or- 
ganizations at the U. S. 0. building 
in Lebanon. Those girls volunteering 
their services were Victoria Turco, 
Sally Hartman, Doris Hoffman, Doris 
Smith, Ruth Graybill, Garneta Seav- 
ers, Mildred Cross, Ruth Heminway, 
Ruth Wix, Irene Barber, and Betty 
Gooden. This activity was one on the 
two day schedule for obtaining pub- 
licity material. 

At that time several photographers, 
who had formerly been foreign cor- 
respondents, were present. These men 
had been sent by the National Y. M. 
C. A. with the assignment of photo- 
graphing the activities of the United 
Service Organization. Numerous pic- 
tures were taken, which will first be 
used by a Chicago paper and then 
printed in such leading magazines as 
Life, Look, and Click. Those from 
L. V. C. who were present were photo- 
graphed and their pictures may be in- 
cluded in those to be printed. The U. 
S. O. building in Lebanon has the dis- 
tinction of being the only one in the 
United States which is being used for 
photographing these activities. 

Sophs Hold 
Informal Hop 
On Saturday 

The Union Hose Company gymna- 
sium on the second floor of the build- 
ing on Railroad Street in Annville 
will be the scene of a "different" Soph 
Hop to be held (Saturday evening, 
March 7, at eight o'clock. 

The sophomore class has planned 
several feature attractions designed 
to catch the attention of everyone. 
Not only will a door prize be given, 
but also there will be featured a grand 
old American custom, the cake walk. 
Another innovation planned by the 
class will be the serving of refresh- 
ment during the dance. A well-known 
orchestra will provide appropriate 
tunes for the evening's activities. The 
name of the orchestra may not be dis- 
closed, as the entire orchestra will not 
be present. However, those interested 
may be assured that there will be as 
many pieces as have been obtained for 
other class dances and that the orch- 
estra is an excellent one. 

The president of the class, Edward 
Stansfield, has appointed the com- 
mittees for the dance. Dorothy Jean 
Light is chairman of the decorations 
committe which includes Jo Marie 
Shannon, Jean Garland, Emma Cath- 
arine Miller, Paul Fisher and Char- 
les Frantz. The orchestra committee 
is composed of John Chambers, chair- 
man, Ruth Graybill, Marilyn Trout- 
man, Clayton Hollinger, Frank Unger 
and Charles Newbaker. The ad- 
vertising committee includes Rob- 
ert Kern, chairman, Ruth Gray- 
bill, Marilyn Troutman, John 
Paul Hummel, and Howard 
Neidig. Arrangements for programs 
were in charge of Harry Miller with 
a committee including Miriam Tip- 
pery, Garneta Seavers, Bruce Soud- 
ers, and George Stine. 

Dr. and Mrs. Lynch 
Entertain Juniors 
and Sophomores 

Dr. and Mrs. Clyde A. Lynch en- 
tertained the Junior Class at tea at 
their home on Wednesday, March 4, 
from 3:30 to 5:30 P. M. The program 
consisted of a reading given by Marie 
Werner, a flute solo by Milton Baker, 
and a baritone solo by J. Ross Al- 
bert. Those assisting Mrs. Lynch were 
Virginia Stonecipher, Helen Bush, 
Katherine Allen, and 

Today from 3:30 to 5:30 the Sopho- 
more class was entertained at tea by 
the President and his wife. Furnish- 
ing the program were, Marian Krei- 
der who gave a reading, Rosanna 
Brandt, soprano, and George Moore 
who played a violin solo. Martha Da- 
vies, Irene Barber, Elizabeth Satta- 
zahn and Lois Seavers assisted Mrs. 

It is the yearly practice of Dr. and 
Mrs. Lynch to invite the three under- 
classes to such social gatherings in 
their home. The conclusion of the 
round will be the Freshmen afternoon 
on March 11. Women of the sister 
classes assist in the serving. The 
privilege of belonging to the Senior 
class entails an invitation to dinner 
later in the year.

Last week we expressed the desire 
to know why our American flag has 
not been flying over the campus. The 
reason is a legitimate one — the flag 
or fixture is so damaged that it can- 
not be raised until repair is complet- 
ed. Which brings us back to those 
whe raised the question. 

You want to see the flag on the 
cupola. Well, you can and will if you 
help the issue — it is your flag, it is 
your school, it is the patriotic thing 
to do. Are you interested enough to 
put that flag where it belongs? 

Love Or Hate . . * 

Criticism of the Navy's recently an- 
nounced plan to employ psychologists 
who will "engender in aviation ca- 
dets a hate for our enemies and their 
methods" was made in a recent letter 
to Secretary of the Navy Frank Knox 
by Homer D. Swander, Jr., president 
of the Student League of America, 
which has active chapters on 60 of the 
nation's campuses. 

Swander, a junior at the University 
of Michigan and an editor on the 
college daily, pointed out in his letter 
that "the Student League, whose mem- 
bers were interventionists long before 
Pearl Harbor and are now solidly be- 
hind anything which will help in the 
war effort, vigorously objects to such 
a program of 'psychological' training. 

"Those of us who are going to fight 
this war, do not and do not want to, 
hate the German, Italian or Japanese 
people. We hate their ideas and what 
they stand for, certainly. But we also 
realize that after the war is over we 
are going to have to live in a world 
community with the very persons we 
are now fighting; and we know that 
engendering hate today will only pave 
the way for a break-up of that com- 
munity and eventually another war. 

"Furthermore, this is not a battle 
which must be fought with a concept 
as negative as hate. We will have a 
far greater chance for victory if our 
soldiers and sailors are taught that 
the United Nations are fighting for 
the positive concept of freedom. When 
a man comes to understand the real, 
basic issues of liberty versus slavery, 
of prosperity versus poverty, he will 
fight with a vigor and a courage un- 
matched by any hate-filled man on 

"We appeal to you, then, in the in- 
terests of victory and the permanent 
peace to immediately stop any pro-

Casual Notes: One of the most hon- 
ored composers of modern serious mu- 
sic is thirty-two year old William 
Schumann. Mr. Schumann's work has 
been read by some of the nation's 
greatest symphony orchestras, and his 
Fourth Symphony was done by the 
Cleveland Symphony just last Satur- 
day. His music, fortunately, lacks the 
more objectionable qualities found in 
some of the modern serious music. Mr. 
Schumann was educated according to 
American standards, for he attended 
a New York high school and then 
continued his education at Columbia 
University where he majored in sci- 
ence and art. To add the necessary 
polish he studied music in Europe as 
did most American composers before 
the war. Mr. Schumann is now en- 
gaged by the Sarah Lawrence School 
as a teacher and conductor of the 

The collector of classical records will 
be interested in some of the later re- 
cordings of the Rachmaninoff piano 
concertos. Of particular interest is his 
Concerto No. 3 in D Minor for piano 
and orchestra as done by Horawitz 
and the London Philharmonic on Vic- 
tor Records. 

In a previous column I expressed 
my contempt for the modern arrange- 
ments of the Tschaikowsky Piano 
Concerto in B Flat Minor; however 
I also said that certain classical 
themes were quite successfully mod- 
ernized. Three have come to my at- 
tention recently that I think are the 
best modern adaptations that have 
come on the popular scene for some 
time. All of them are done by Jan 
Savitt and his orchestra and they 
were arranged by his former pianist, 
Jack Price. The Sorcerer's Appren- 
tice, Little Fugue, and In the Hall of 
The Mountain King are all done in a 
way that is far from objectionable to 
the classical fan. Little Fugue is tak- 
en from a Bach fugue in G minor and 
retains the fugue structure with an 
excellent swing touch added. The oth- 
er two are done equally well, and they 
needed some swing injections anyway. 

As for the popular music itself I 
suppose the most popular is Blues In 
the Night. This composition is des- 
tined to join the rank of swing class- 
ics along with St. Louis Blues, Basin 
Street Blues, and the others. There 
are several arrangements that deserve 
praise. The top vocal honors go defi- 
nitely to Dinah Shore, and the orchids 
for instrumental ability go to the 
Benny Goodman sextet. Put the two 
together and you will have the com- 
plete, ideal combination. The best all- 
round recording is of course Woody 
Herman's. Besides this tune there are 
a few outstanding ballads that rank 
among the best for the past few years. 
Moonlight Cocktails, Lamp of Memo- 
ries, and Day Dreaming among others 
deserve special mention. Four roses 
to Glen Miller for his record breaking 
of String of Pearls; this tune is sure 
to top Tuxedo Junction and In the 

Added Note: The popular songs 
arising out of the war are entirely a 
matter of personal taste. With a few 
exceptions they are incipid. 

gram of the Navy's which is designed 
to instill hatred in the men of our 
armed forces." 

Swander was chosen as president of 
the Student League when the organi- 
zation was established at a conven- 
tion held at Harvard University dur- 
ing the recent Christmas recess. The 
League grew out of a merger of our 
organizations formerly known as the 
Student League for Progressive Ac- 
tion, the Student Defenders of Democ- 
racy, the College Division of the Com- 
mittee to Defend America, and De- 
mocracy's Volunteers.

tion which a certain campus saw 

Wuzzy Gehookt had great aspi ra . 
tions to become campus dog-catcher 
The dog situation about the coll e » 
had become really serious, and "W Uz 
zy, being a biology major and having 
a way with dogs, was the most lik e i v 
prospect for the post. However, Wu 2 
zy was quiet and unassuming; also he 
was too weak to shake hands and do 
back-slapping since he had just recov- 
ered from a bad case of dandruff 
Then, of course, we must not forget 
that he lived in Lower Hall, and all 
politics was run by Upper Hall. 

The election day rolled around, and 
Wuzzy's hopes were high. All ad- 
mitted that there was none other as 
capable of being a good dog-catcher 
as he. Notwithstanding all this 
Wuzzy's hopes were short-lived. "Bat 
tier" Brawl was the chairman of the 
election, and Upper Hall reigned as 
usual. Lower Hall's ballots were torn 
up right before their eyes while each 
Upper Hall man was given as many 
ballots as he could fill out without 
getting writer's cramp. All of the 
committee to count ballots came from 
Upper Hall. 

The obvious result of the election is 
merely mentioned as an anti-climax. 
Wuzzy Gehookt was crushed; and as 
dog catcher the political machine had 
"steam rollered" in A. Grand Flopp, 
a chem major who didn't know a dog 
from a squirrel, and who started out 
in the commission of his duties by 
climbing trees. 

This picture taken from political 
life as it is should serve to bring be- 
fore us one point: a campus office is 
a joke instead of an honor when such 
conditions exist. 

Unless we institute a house-clean- 
ing, we shall be inviting the end of 
self-government, and it will be nec- 
essary for some power to step in, in 
order to protect the interests of the 
student body at large. 

Class Dues 

The matter of class dues always 
causes a great deal of confusion 
around this time of year particularly 
in the Junior and Senior classes. The 
chief difficulty seems to arise from 
the fact that every time the occasion 
of the Junior prom, Senior ball, or 
the payment on the year book rolls 
around the class treasury has already 
been blitzkreiged. Then the same old 
system is applied. Various students 
are dismissed from classes because 
they have not paid up which results 
in quite a few red faces. 

It's a fact that most of us tend to 
procrastinate in paying a debt tf*™. 
allowed to linger on indefinitely. 1 
is exactly what happens in ^ nanCl h 
the class. A scattered few pay for e 
doings of their class for the first thr^ 
years. The last year the delinq 


dues-payers find themselves m 
water with too much to pay at 01 
time. t 

Why can't the payments be made 
the rate of five dollars per year, 
able to the college proper at the op 
ing of each term? Then the class ^ 
for that year will be collected » 
the student will hardly notice that aid . 
or her dues have already been V 
Also each class will be able to n" 
all their functions and the coiatta 
in charge will know just how 
they can spend. 

There must be some changes ^ 
and every helpful suggestion w ^, 
greatly appreciated and carefu ^ 
amined. Perhaps the reader may ^

frounce Valley 
Varsity Squad 

^ greatly improved F. & M. Basket- 
11 team which evidently has just 
wakened to the fact that they still 
a . e in the running for the Eastern 
!! Hegiate League Championship 
orn ped through the Blue and White 
f Lebanon Valley College to score a 
53.32 victory. 

Qff to a fast start in the initial 
s tan za tne diplomats immediately ran 
„ 15-6 lead and from then on the 


putchmen, with Mease, their one man 
(fensive, being held down by excel- 
lent guarding, never appeared to be 
in the game at all. 

Continuing their offensive, the Di- 
lomats led by Tom Makin continued 
la outshoot the Blue and White 12-5 
to leave the floor at intermission with 
a substantial 27-11 lead. 

A few changes in the L. V. lineup 
^ half time produced some results, 
but only in the final session did the 
visitors find the range with sufficient 
accuracy to outscore their favored ri- 

Both Coach Intrieri and Barr made 
numerous substitutions in the final 
period and it is gratifying to note 
that during the period in which the 
L. V. second team played against the 
Diplomat understudies they more than 
held their own. 

Captain Ralph Mease, while held in 
close check for the greater part of 
the fray, again led the L. V. offense 
with 9 counters. He was given sur- 
prising and gratifying help by Neidig, 
the up-and-coming Sophomore under- 

j study to Kubisen, who netted six 
counters in his brief stay in the game, 

1 while Kubisen, C. Miller and Smith 
came through with four each. Con- 
sistent fouling again featured the L. 
V. attack and the Diplomats ran up 

, no less than 15 markers from the 
charity stripe. 

Freshmen Beaten By 
Diplomat Frosh And 
Hershey Team 

The Frosh quintet seems allergic 
to the, number four as they lost their 
last two games by four points. In the 
preliminary encounter to the F. and 
M. varsity game Frock's amazing five- 
man freshman team gave the favored 
Diplomat yearlings quite a scare be- 
fore bowing by a 34-30 score. Ben 
Wasileski kept the young Dutchmen 
in the game by scoring 16 points to 
share honors with F. and M.'s Eshel- 
man. Housel and Beriont came next 
with six. 

In their game with the Hershey 
Industrial School dribblers the Frosh 
faded in the last period in the face 
of a brilliant rally to lose 35-31 to 
the Spartans on the latter's court on 
Monday. The Blue and White year- 
lings spurted from behind an early 
deficit to move out to a 28-23 lead at 
three-quarters as Schreiber and Was- 
ileski paved the Frockmen into the 
lead. Joe Eby, Hejrshey center then 
went into action for the homsters and 
led his team to victory in sparking 
a rally that saw Hershey out-score 
the Collegians by a 12-3 margin in 
the final chapter. Schreiber was first 
with 13 points for the losers with 
Wasileski and Beriont contributing to 
the cause. Beshore worked commend- 
ably under the opponents basket for 
the Valley.

Second Round In 
Inter-Mural League 

Two more games were run off in the 
hitch-hikers' league with the Juniors 
and Freshmen coming out on the long 
end of the scores. In a shameful game 
the Juniors pounded the Sophomores 
until they emerged a 31-24 winner. 
Captain Urich of the Junior club was 
banned from competition in the early 
stages of the game. "Chick" Edwards 
of the Sophs was forced to leave the 
game via the foul route in the second 
half. Altogether 26 personal fouls 
were committed in 32 minutes of play 
ing time. Little led the way for the 
third year men with five double count 
ers and one free chukker. Horner had 
eight for the Sophs. The Sophomores 
started out fast posting a 13-4 lead 
at the end of the first period. In the 
next two periods the Juniors held 
them to 4 points while they garnered 
20 on their own behalf. 

In the other game the snappy first 
year team rolled over the Seniors to 
the tune of 65-46. The Frosh took 
the lead in the first minutes of play 
and were never headed. Fake threw 
them in from all angles of the court 
to collect a total of 28 points. Yoder 
and Donough came next with twelve 
points. J. H. Light performed nicely 
in the backcourt. For the Seniors 
Shay walked off with individual scor- 
ing honors, dumping eleven field goals 
for 22 points. Boltz found the hoop 
now and then managing to rack up 
6 two pointers and a brace of fouls.

Frosh And Honor 
Squad Triumph 
Over S'burg Girls 

Last Wednesday afternoon the 
Girls' Honor Squad and a team made 
up of Frosh gals all traveled Ship- 
pensburg way to chalk up the first 
marks in the win column for this 
season. In the first game of the even- 
ing the Blue and White Honor Squad 
meted out an overwhelming defeat to 
the State Teachers' College, to the 
tune of 35-4. The Valley girls started 
the game with a driving offense, roll- 
ing up 15 points in the first quarter. 
Shippensburg trailed by 14 counterSj 
sinking only one charity toss before 
the whistle blew. In chapter two, the 
amazing energy of the Blue and White 
sextette seemed to wane slightly, and 
they were held down to gaining only 
7 counters. Nevertheless, they came 
out on the long end, for again Ship- 
pensburg succeeded in garnering only 
one additional point by means of a 
foul shot. The third canto witnessed 
the Valley lasses taking it easy be- 
cause of the 20-point margin by which 
they were ahead. This unproductive 
period served to rack up just four 
more notches for L. V. C, while the 
opposition's score remained the same. 
In the final stanza there was a back- 
surge of the former enthusiasm 
among the Valleyites, who put the 
sphere through the hoop four times in 
quick succession, and then slipped in a 
charity shot for good measure. In 
this same quarter, Shippensburg gain- 
ed its sole field goal of the game. 

In the Lebanon Valley aggregation, 
Klopp played an outstanding game, 
accounting for seventeen points, al- 
most half of the total score. Bobbie 
Herr contributed an even dozen points 
while Stabley rolled in two field goals 
and two foul shots to add her half- 
dozen to the collection. Geyer and 
Witmeyer played consistently every 
minute of the game, while Wilt and 
Kreider shared the burden of the 
third partner in the corporation. 

In the second tilt on the schedule, 
Shippensburg was again compelled to 
hail the Valley as conqueror, for the 
yearlings' game resulted in a Blue 
and White triumph of the 31-17 vari- 
ety. In the opening period the teams 
seemed quite evenly matched, as each 
harvested four points, to start part 
two on an even keel. At the end of the 
first half, the Valley Frosh were on 
the short end of a 13-12 score. How- 
ever, they made a strong comeback 
which served to reverse the order of 
the numbers of their former score, 
and 12 became 21, while the Teach- 
ers' College raised 13 to 15. Again in 
the closing division, the Blue and 
White youngsters came through with 
10 more counters to their credit, while 
their opponents added only two more, 
to bring their total to 17. 

Ginnie Stonecipher was successful 
in making 7 field goals to account for 
14 points, while a new name, Thelma 
Kintzel hit the scoring column with 11 
points, leaving Bush to chalk up the 
remaining 6. Brandt, Waller and Fish- 
er collaborated in true Valley fashion 
in the guard positions. 

Elimination Begins 
In M. D. S. Doubles 
Handball Play . of f s 

Pairings for matches in the Day 
Students' Doubles Handball Tourna- 
ment were posted this week. With the 
final round of play in the singles tour- 
nament play about to be played, 
enough interest has been shown to 
plan the doubles play-offs. Eight 
teams are entered in the tournament. 
All sixteen contestants have partici- 
pated in the singles matches coming 
to a close within a week. Results of 
the doubles matches will be reported 
within the next week or two. 

In the first match scheduled, John 
Henry Light and Dwight Fake, inex- 
perienced but willing freshmen, are 
pitted against Lefty Little and 
Franklin Patschke. Last year Little 
teamed up with Ralph Shay to win 
the doubles crown from Robert Ull- 
rich and Johnny Wise. Patschke is a 
favored contender for singles laurels 
and has advanced to the semi-final 
round without experiencing difficulty. 
In the second match, Johnny Wise and 
Ralph Shay are slated to meet Earl 
Troup and Sam Stein in their first 
meeting with opponents. Wise is no 
longer in the running for the singles 
title, but will be a capable help-mate 
for Shay, last year's singles champ 
and leading contender for top honors 
again this season. 

Bob Uhrich and Johnny Wise will 
meet "Bad Boy" Hummel and Bruce 
Souders in their first match. The for- 
mer pair is favored to win out over 
the latter team of sophomores. Uhrich 
has been a consistent performer in 
tournament play for the last two 
years, but has never gone above the 
first or second round. His best per- 
formance was with Wise in the dou- 
bles matches last spring. Earl Reber 
and Roger Morey, two steady veteran 
performers, are expected to trounce 
Fred Frantz and Jakie Rhodes in the 
fourth match scheduled. Reber has 
been toppled from the ranks of the 
undefeated in the singles play-offs last 
week while Morey fell by the wayside 
only several days ago.

Day Studentettes 
Lead In Inter<Dorm 
Basketball League 

Last Thursday afternoon at 4:30 
the Day Studentettes met the newly- 
organized team composed of the gals 
from North and Wept Halls. The duo- 
team, unable to cope with the mighty 
commuters, came out on the short end 
of a 28-18 score. This triumph, added 
to an already lengthy list of victor- 
ies, served to give the Day Student- 
ettes a more secure grasp on the top- 
ranking position in the league. 

Thursday's game brought to the 
front some names heretofore almost 
unnoticed in the basketball realm. 
Among the ranks of the North-West 
aggregation, Ruthie Haverstock took 
a lead position, accounting for sixteen 
of that contingent's points. The old 
faithfuls, Geyer and Bush, manifested 
their usual skill in giving the com- 
muters something to worry about. 

In the shakeup on the side of the 
conquerors, Marilyn Trautman emer- 
ged among first-class players, by vir- 
tue of a commendable performance in 
a forward position. Stonecipher and 
Brandt both played games that are 
deserving of honorable mention. 

The game between South Hall gals 
and the North- West lassies, formerly 
scheduled for Tuesday evening, was 
postponed to a later date, in favor of 
Pet. an Honor Squad practice. This 
.750 crowd's next encounter will be with

Airman Returns 
To L. V. C. Campus 

Ensign Richard Zentmeyer, a form-

on the L. V. C. campus during the 
past week. He is, at present on leave 
before going to a navy base for a 

month previous to joining the North 
Atlantic fleet. 

Zentmeyer began his training at 
Philadelphia and completed it at 
Jacksonville and Miami. This nine 
months of training has made him 
ready to pilot torpedo or bombing 
planes of the Navy. 

In Men Day Student 
H'ball Tournament 

Indications are that a champion 
will be crowned in the day student 
singles handball tournament sometime 
next week. Only two matches remain 
to be played. Ralph Shay, last year's 
champ won the right to enter the final 
round by defeating four opponents in 
a row in the upper bracket. The latest 
victim was Roger Morey who had 
come through to the semi-final round. 
In the lower bracket Bamberger and 
Patschke will battle it out for the 
honor of meeting Shay in the last 
match of the tournament. Last year 
Patschke was eliminated in the semi- 
final round by Shay. Bamberger had 
gone down to defeat in one of his 
first matches. In practice games both 
of these men have beaten each other 
several times. Hence a good game is 
expected from both men who have par- 
ticipated in the tournaments in the 
last three years. 

Morey who had advanced to the 
semi-final bracket by a default from 
Boltz, a triumph over Souders 21-6 
and 21-9 and a victory over Light 
22-20, 11-21, and 21-17 found his 
match in last year's champ. The latter 
experienced trouble getting started 
but rolled over Morey 21-8 in the 
first game;. After a breathing spell the 
battle was continued with Shay com- 
ing out on top 21-2. Morey was simply 
outclassed and had a full job on his 
hands returning the ball to the wall. 
Never giving up until the last point 
had been recorded against him, the 
defeated player played a hard game 
against brilliant play. Shay had prev- 
iously won over Troup 21-11 and 
21-15, defeated Fake 21-12 and 21-10 
and vanquished Reber 21-6 and 21-3. 

In the lower bracket Wise forfeited 
to Patschke to permit the latter to 
enter the semi-final round. Wise had 
defeated Rhodes in a preliminary 
match. Patschke had received a bye 
in the first round and had trounced 
Mueller 21-3 and 21-10. Bamberger 
had also been given a bye in the pair- 
ings and had defeated Hoerner in his 
second round match 21-11 and 21-9. 
McFerren did not choose to play the 
junior performer, thus allowing him 
to meet Patschke in one of the last 
matches. Patschke, more experienced

Saratoga Trunk 

Edna Ferber 

Edna's Ferber's distinguished nov- 
els of the American scene, Amarron, 
Show Boat, So Big and many others, 
share one special quality among them : 
they display at once the glamor and 
the strength of this country and of 
the people who built it. 

Saratoga Trunk is no exception. Its 
background, New Orleans and Sara- 
toga in the 'eighties, is one of the 
most picturesque America has pro- 
duced, but the theme behind the ro- 
mance between Clint Maroon and 
Clio Dulaine, is that of the railroad 
builders, the men who flung across the 
land the roads of steel which united 
it, and toward that end were careless 
of the means they used. 

Not even Show Boat has the color, 
the light, and the vividness of these 
glowing pages. But behind the rom- 
ance and the glitter lies a deeper sig- 
nificance, for this is the story of two 
people in love at the turn of a ruth- 
less century, and it is also the story 
of a way of life and of a breed of men 
who held a helpless continent in thrall, 
and who only today are beginning to 
return their spoils to the people. Full 
of memorable characters, of the plush 
and iron of our fateful past this is 
Edna Ferber's richest and most sat- 
isfying novel.

Women's Five 
Downs E'town 

Six- Year Jinx Broken 
By L. V. C. Women 

Tuesday March 10 witnessed a real 
u p S et in girl's basketball on Leba- 
non Valley campus. After six years of 
defeat at the hands of a strong Eliz- 
abethtown College team, the Blue and 
White lassies turned the tables to tri- 
umph over the E-town aggregation to 
the tune of 23-12. The game was a 
record-breaking one in that it was 
Elizabethtown's second defeat in 
twelve games. Furthermore, their 
score was the lowest they turned in 
for this season. 

In the forward section, Bobbie Herr 
turned in her final performance for 
Lebanon Valley — and a commendable 
performance it was. Although she 
did little shooting, she played a con- 
sistent game feeding the ball to Gin- 
nie Stonecipher and Dottie Moyer 
who, together accounted for the ma- 
jority of the Valley's 23 points. 

The consistent trio of guards, com- 
posed of Wilt, Witmeyer and Geyer 
held down the E-town scorers with 
real finesse. This game was Pete's 
farewell to the basketball court here 
on campus. She said good-bye in her 
usual form— playing a hard game 
with an abundance of good sports- 
manship. Wilt and Witmeyer drove 
with all their respective mights, and 
succeeded in preventing more than a 
very few field shots from finding 
their mark. Most of Elizabethtown's 
score was gained by foul shots. 

This game wound up the season for 
the honor squad, except for a play 
day at Shippensburg on March 28. To 
fate, the team has come out on the 
long end, having won three games 
a nd lost two. Generally speaking, the 
season has been quite a successful one 
—both in scores and in the pleasure 
an d benefit derived from playing.

Huber Discovers 
New Anesthesia 

A recent discovery in the field of 
anesthetics has been made by an 
alumnus of Lebanon Valley College. 
Frederick Huber, graduate of the 
class of 1940, has discovered a local 
anesthetic which has a better and 
more lasting effect than any previous- 
ly used. 

Mr. Huber made his discovery while 
preparing for his master's degree at 
the University of Cincinnati. He ac- 
quired his master's degree in June, 
1941, and is at present engaged in 
teaching qualitative and freshman 
chemistry at 'the University along 
with his work on a thesis on antisep- 
tics with which he hopes to earn his 
doctor's degree. 

Du Pont Laboratories have used 
several of Mr. Huber's discoveries in 
antiseptics and anesthetics. They are 
now tempting him with a laboratory 
position which would have to be ac- 
cepted at the postponement of his doc- 
tor's degree. 

St. Pat Chases Black Cats 
For Friday 13th Party 

Friday the 13th will feature a 
party sponsored by the Y. W. C. A. 
centered about a combined theme of 
a St. Patrick's Day celebration and a 
play on the superstitions implied by 
the mention of Friday the 13th. Plenty 
of atmosphere has been promised by 
chairman Ruth Heminway both in the 
matter of decorations and in the type 
of games which wil intersperse the 
dancing. Refreshments will be ser- 
ved during the course of the evening. 
The "Y" invites everybody to the gym 
at 8:00 P. M., Friday evening for a

Mr Collins' subject was Shakes-

appropriateness of the bard's savings

Campus Tries 
First Total 

The county-wide black-out tonight 
will be observed by L< V. C. Prepar- 
atory to it, practice black-outs in the 
four dormitories have been practiced 
under the direction of Chief Air Raid 
Warden, David Gockley. 

Special directions for procedure in- 
clude the following: 

1. Before leaving your room for 
either a short or long time, extinguish 
ALL lights. 

2. Go to the place assigned you. 
No person not appointed is to be out- 
side. Men leave the women's dormi- 
tory parlors. 

3. In case of accidents report to 
the air wardens who will notify the 
proper individual. 

4. Auxiliary police must be obey- 
ed if enlisted by an air warden to 
force order. 

In conjunction with the local unit 
of the county defense program the air 
wardens and auxiliary police of Leb- 
anon Valley College were sworn into 
office on March 10 at the Annville 
High School. The oath was adminis- 
tered by Squire John Witmeyer and 
is effective for the duration of the

first aid organization, announces that 
approximately forty persons have en- 
rolled for instruction in addition to 
the freshman first aid class. Miss 
Henderson and he are attempting to 
obtain an instructor before April. 
Should no one be available before that 
time, more than one class per week 
will have to be held in order that 
twenty hours of instruction be obtain- 
ed before June 1. 

Those enrolled in this first aid 
class will be expected to take charge 
in case of accidents during the trial 
black-out this evening. 

I. R. C. Discusses 
Defense Program 

The regular meeting of the I. R. 
C. was held Monday evening, March 
9, at 7 p.m. in Room 27 of the Ad- 
ministration building. The topic for 
discussion was, "The Progress and 
Effect of Our National Defense Pro- 
gram." Elizabeth Sattazahn, Kathryn 
Brehm and Jacob Rhodes outlined 
the economic, social and military 
phases of the topic respectively. A 
short period of general discussion fol- 

During the brief business meeting 
the club decided to sponsor a movie 
covering some current international 
subject. The movie will probably be 
held some time in April and will be 
open to all students and faculty mem- 

The next meeting' of the club will be 
held April 13 at which time Miss

New Banner • . . 

We herein wish to note that L. V. C. 
received a flag pronto when her want 
was discovered. Donald Bartley donat- 
ed the new "Star-Spangled Banner." 
You will see it flying just as soon as 
the cupola fixture has been repaired. 

This Means Yon . . . 

Worn out though the subject be, we 
call to your attention once more a 
need for cooperation. Tonight we will 
have our first complete blackout. In 
a time like this you take orders. You 
are not an individual. If you have a 
duty, do it. If you have a disagree- 
ment with anyone, wait to settle it. 

You and you and you are in civilian 
service. You are expected to conduct 
yourself like a good, cooperative, pa- 
triotic soldier. 

Serve! • . Ready? 

"In the spring a young man's fancy 
lightly turns to" — tennis, among oth- 
er things. "And these mild March 
days most assuredly seem like spring. 
The long light evenings make the dorm 
seem stuffier than usual for the East- 
ern War Time makes Eastern Tennis 
Time. The damp earth is ripe for 
rolling. — How soon will the tennis nets 
be spanning the courts? 

We do feel that it would be a great 
advantage if the tennis courts were 
rolled into shape early this year. In 
the past they are barely in good con- 
dition when the term ends. This year 
we leave even earlier than usual, 
spring seems to be coming earlier than 
usual, we need exercise more than us- 
ual, and the nights give us more time 
than usual. We are serving the first 
ball. Will it be returned? 

Eve-Extension Notes 

A "blessed event" of special import- 
ance to L. V. C. evening students took 
place recently, and it is with pardon- 
able enthusiasm that we announce that 
Mr. Zinicola of our Friday evening 
classes has just become "proud papa" 
for the second time. Both mother and 
daughter are doing nicely, thank you! 

Since the beginning of the second 
semester, eve' students have been 
missing the familiar vim and enthusi- 
asm of one Viola Fager, who for years 
has been whole-heartedly interested in 
the classes herself, and has done much 
for the rest of us in the way of solv- 
ing that eternal problem of transpor- 
tation. To Miss Fager we extend our 
sincerest appreciation, with the hope 
that the Fall term will find her back 
among us once more. 

You day students may have noticed 
a bright new smile about the campus 
during the last few weeks. It belongs 
to Jane Kreider, former evening 
school student, who recently gave up 
her Friday night sessions for a full- 
time schedule at day school. Best of 
luck, Jane, in your more extensive 

Fair warning! All unknown to you 
dorm students, of course, your Friday 
evening rec' hours are sometime apt 
to "rec" real havoc in the classes in 
the upper reaches of the Administra- 
tion Building. It's mental torture of 
the most exquisite variety to sit in 
class trying desperately to be true to 
one's intellect when the teasing rhy- 
thm of "Moonlight Cocktail" or "You 
Made Me Love You" keeps insinuat- 
ing itself through the good professor's 
lecture. What with the coming balmy 
weather, and all that, don't be sur- 
prised some evening if there is a gen- 
eral exodus from the class rooms to 
the gym! 

I" From the Wings J 

Rush Order — Two weeks ago the 
cast for Kalo-Delphian's play was an- 
nounced and by now they are more 
than half way through production! 
Instead of the usual six weeks given 
for rehearsing a three act play "Her 
Step Husband" has been allotted ex- 
actly half that time — just three 
weeks in all. But many of the parts 
are already in good shape and the cast 
has even started to collect properties! 
Mrs. Jean Billett who is directing the 
play has had this problem before with 
Kalo-Delphian plays. She directed 
"Outward Bound" last year and "The 
Youngest" the year before with the 
same time element to work against. 

Her Step-Husband — The play itself 
is a light comedy plot that is built 
around the mix-up that results from 
a series of bragging lies that the hero- 
ine, Mary Marshall, tells. Mary is an 
incurable romantic who cannot resist 
making dramatic the simplest happen- 
ings. Her husband complains that his 
life is one scenario after another. This 
time she pulls everyone around her 
into the mix-up and the result is im- 
possibly funny! 

Some Surprises — The most out- 
standing fact that is noticed immedi- 
ately about the casting of this partic- 
ular play is that five out of nine mem- 
bers are Freshmen. There just hap- 
pens to be lots of dramatic talent 
among the newest Kalos and Delph- 
ians because a percentage like this in 
any important play is very unusual ! 
They seem to be holding their own too 
in the quality of their acting. . . . 
Marie Werner is going to be a real 
surprise. She has all the little man- 
nerisms and vocal inflections that be- 
long to the flighty, impractical but 
adorable type of woman that Mary is

Winchell has a Girl Friday so I got myself one, too - - - - not that 
we're in the same category, but even the humblest of morons needs a vaca- 
tion and this is it! May I present a guest writer and don't 

ask who 'tis cause we're not atellin'. 

One lovely evening (or rather MORNING) last week a bridge game 

dissolved into a spaghetti dinner a' la pajamas in Lebanon the 

early birds were Derr, Detambel, Guthrie, Morrison, and Stine - - - - ec- 
centrics or — well, think what you like and we'll agree 

Then there's the confusing story of our little Sally and her string of 

devotees We count four, and who knows how many more ? ? But 

something tells us her heart still belongs to Johnny. 

Ask Hultin if he enjoyed his ride home last Friday - - - - 

We've heard that Herbie Greider is learning to count to ten - - - - 

Freddie Laucks wrote to President F. D. R. and offered her services 
as an ambulance driver in Australia - - - - 

That binging and banging and howling the other night blew half of 
North Hall out of bed at 4 A. M. and into the Garland-Conserve shelter 

seemed like the best refuge for all those scarey gals >, and one 

of the Men's Dormers says he couldn't sleep that night because "the angels 

were raising up there." Of course we're talking about the March 

wind and before it disappears (it'll probably be spring again when you read 
this) let's see if it can blow a few crumbs this way. 

Now why wasn't Staley elected best looking man ? ? Did you get a 
squint at those proofs he was flashing around ? ? 

And we're still wondering who gets dressed faster— Smith Doris or 
Waller Jeanne — and why? 

Say, when Miss Gillespie goes to Rec Hour we girls certainly do have 
competition that really competes 

That RED threat from Hummelstown by way of E-town sort of fizzled 

out As a result Miller paid off to Geyer to the tune of three packs 

of gum 

Lock-smashing is another of Mike's attributes when Shay 

stowed the time-clock snugly away in his locker and couldn't be found at the 
crucial hour, coach just battered away 

Could it be that Boltz was fog-bound last week — anyhow he wrote up 
the same game for LA VIE two successive weeks without being any the 
wiser ------ 

We hear Chuck was the star of soc class when he rattled off the 
college motto in the most elegant Latin - - - - and did the class roar! 
'twas like a bolt from the blue 

supposed to be. ... A few days ago 
Lizette Fisher and Esther Zandel 
switched parts. Esther now takes the 
part of Mary's sophisticated woman 
friend, while Lizette is in the role of 
the formidable rich aunt that every- 
body is trying to impress. Mrs. Billet 
happened to find out that Lizette had 
the ability to adapt a deep mannish 
voice at will, so now she has full op- 
portunity to use it as Aunt Emmy. 
Incidentally, Lizette has a good bit 
of dramatic experience behind her. . . 
once she was twins in a play and 
later in her career she wrote a three 
act play that was produced by her 

class. . . . Louise Boger and Nick Dor- 
azio play opposite each other as crook 
and maid. We've never seen Louise in 
the role of a rough illiterate servant, 
but she seems to have it down right 
well with even a new sort of accent. 
Nick Dorazio as Limpy Lanigan, the 
burglar who uses awful English and 
who "loves babies," is an unexpected 
find also. This play is as full of new 
talent as it is full of laughs. This is 
perhaps, after all, the most remark- 
able thing about it . . . there are laugh 
lines all through it that can be most 
effective if they are interpreted as 
they should be. 

In honor of a man and an ideal 
... a small paper-back book 
was brought to my attention v 

1 the 


library, issued by the Columbia Br 
casting System, let a program on 
evening of December 2, 1941, be f 0r 
gotten. The book contains three talk 
on freedom by Archibald MacLej s ^ 
Librarian of Congress, William S p 
ley, president of CBS, and Edward ft 
Murrow, a returned newscaster f rott) 
England, in whose honor a dinner w as 
being given at the time of the broad 
cast. Few of us are well acquainted 
with Murrow, but the ideal which 
honored by these speakers is worthv 
of note here. 

Archibald MacLeish, in his talk, 
Superstition Is Destroyed," drew at 
tention to the fact that men such a? 
Murrow have obliterated the "super, 
stition of time and distance" by means 
of their broadcasts from another con- 
tinent. The ether brought to our verv 
"back kitchens and front living 
rooms" the picture of a London burn- 
ed in our houses and whose flames we 
felt. All this was presented "without 
more emotion than needed be." De- 
spite opposition in some quarters— 
when some shouted "war-monger at 
those who tell them what is happening 
in other countries" — the truth was 
brought to the American people who 
themselves "are not afraid to know 
what they are up against." For bring- 
ing this truth, Murrow is worthy of 

In introducing Murrow, William 
Paley paid tribute to his "insight, 
imagination, understanding and cour- 
age." Yet it would not have been 
possible for the newscasts to come 
through without "freedom of the air," 
the radioman's immediate name for 
freedom of speech. "The fight for 
freedom of speech, like that for other 
freedoms, can always be lost. Only 
after all the world sees its true value 
and is unshakably determined to keep 
it, will the fight be finally and per- 
manently won." Freedom of speech is 
an "assurance that neither govern 
ment nor dominant interests of any 
sort shall further their selfish or sin- 
ister ends by deciding what the people 
shall be allowed to say or hear said. 
Under this "system of freedom . . • tne 
bad ideas get washed out, the good 
ones survive, and mankind moves for- 

Significant among the ideas present- 
ed by Edward Murrow was the fa^ 1 
that his communiques were as inter- 
ested in giving pictures of the British 
public as they were in giving reports 
of battles lost or won. His problem 
was to assess the "morale, determine 
tion, yes, and even the sense of humoj 
of the world's greatest civilian army- 
Speaking very favorably of Bn 1 
censorship, he said, "I should be u ^ 
willing to broadcast from a nation 
war without any censorship <*" g 
The responsibility for human »ve 

would be too great." 


Much of what he said has been 
moded by the turn in America's P° 

u 9 ho w 
tion in the war since December e>, 

ever the stories of severe rationing 
clothes, an absence of an endless 

+fJTlt P°

scored 17 points in the third session 
to put on one of the most sensational 
individual scoring exhibitions ever wit-

The final chapter saw many sub-

for 11 points in the final period. Car-

Patschke Triumphs 
Over Shay To Gain 
Handball Laurels 

A new Day Student Handball cham- 
pion was crowned this week when 
Franklin Patschke spotted defending 
champion Ralph Shay one game and 
then came on to win by a sensational 
rally by scores of 16-21, 21-2, 21-11. 

Shay starting fast took the first 
game by getting an early lead and 
holding it although he was forced to 
the very limit to do so. PatscKke on 
the other hand conserved his energy 
f °r the later games and this served 
to bring victory to him as Shay tired 
badly in the final game. 

Brilliant shots featured the first

Inter Mural Playoff 
Scheduled To Take 
Place Wednesday 

Next Wednesday evening, it is 
planned to hold the play-off game be- 
tween the championship teams of 
the Dormitory and Day Student in- 
ter-mural leagues. The game will be 
played at 8:15 p. m. at the Annville 
High School gymnasium. Arrange- 
ments are almost complete. If the 
high school gym is not booked for 
that night, the game will be staged, 
as planned, to determine the inter- 
mural champs. The date, however, is 
only tentative, but a definite an- 
nouncement will be made by the end 
of this week as to the definite place 
and date. 

The winner in the Dorm League has 
not been decided upon, as yet, since 
there are several games to be played 
before next Wednesday. In the Day 
Students' League, the Junior team 
copped the title on Monday while the 
Sophs and Frosh fought it out be- 
tween themselves for the runner-up 
position. The day students will prob- 
ably take the floor with Captain 
"Lefty" Little, "Steve" Metro, Bob 
Uhrich, John Hocker and Bill Neville 
at the start of the contest. 

Aa an added attraction, it has been 
arranged to stage an All-star game 
as a preliminary contest beginning 
about 7 p. m. The members will be

Lion Cubs Trounce 
Dutchmen Yearlings 
In Last Home Game 

The Lebanon Valley College fresh- 
man basketball team wound up the 
current campaign last Wednesday 
evening by losing out to the Albright 
Frosh 56-34. The contest played at 
the Lebanon High School gym was a 
roughly played battle. A total of 27 
personal fouls were called throughout 
this fray. 

The Cubs were held to a 8-5 lead 
at the end of the first period. The 
visitors really went to town in the 
second canto and dropped six field 
goals and two fouls through the hoop. 
Brusch and Guensch led the attack in 
this period. 

The rest at the intermission did 
the Valley men a bit of good for the 
Dutchmen came through to hold the 
Albright outfit to a 41-25 advantage 
at the close of the third chukker. 
However, the Frockmen wilted in the 
final chapter as Brusch found the 
range again. The Blue and White 
yearlings were snowed under in this 
canto, 15-9. 

Guensch and Brusch were the top 
men for the Albright aggregation, 
with the former scoring 15 counters 
while the latter accounted for 14 
pointers for the victors. Wasileski 
came through for the Valleyrtes with 
a total of 15 points to share top hon- 
ors for the evening with Guensch. 

Junior Aggregation 
Maintains Lead In 
Dormitory League 

Last Thursday night in the final 
games of the second round of the 
Men's Intradorm Basketball League, 
the smooth Junior five defeated a 
hard-fighting Senior club, 61-33, while 
the Freshmen were victorious over 
the backsliding Sophs, 49-28. 

In the opener the Juniors took an 
early lead and were never headed. In 
fact, every Junior player hit the 
scoring column, with Beckner's 22, 
and Hank Schmaltzer's 16 leading 
the parade. 

For the Seniors, Chris Wornas's 
all-around floor play and his "dead- 
eye" which accounted for 21 points 
was outstanding. The rest of the Sen- 
ior five, especially "Irv" Berman, play- 
ed aggressive ball. 

The half-time score was 24-11 in 
favor of the Juniors. 

In the second game the Frosh had 
an easy time with the Sophs. Led by 
their scoring aces, Tony Ventresca 
and "Jane" Withers, who scored 15 
and 13 points respectively, the first- 
year men held a 28-12 halftime edge. 

Leading the Sophs were Zerbe and 
Altman with 19 points between them 
while "Bomber" Schwalm amazed 
those present with his "smashing" 
floor work. 

In this week's play the Juniors went 
into undisputed possession of first 
place by defeating the freshmen in 
an overtime battle. The Sophs came 
back into the title picture with a tri- 
umph over the Seniors. 

The opening battle saw an alert 
Freshman team capitalize on every 
opportunity to run up a 30-20 lead 
at the half. 

However, in the second half^ the 
Juniors came back strong and time 
ran out with both clubs having 41 

In the extra period, the Freshmen 
weakened by the loss by Ventresca, 
via the personal foul route, were no 
match for the Juniors who won the 
game with a garrison finish 47-41. 

Dick Phillips led the victors with 
13 points, while Withers topped the 
Frosh with 17. 

The second affair saw the Sophs 
scoring practically at will against the 
Seniors. Led by Altman with 16 
points, and Zerbe's 14, the Sophs took 
a 28-8 lead at half-time and coasted 
in with a 48-18 triumph. Seiverling 
and Wornas shone for the losers. 

Junior Team Takes 
Championship Title 
By Downing Seniors 

Those unstoppable Juniors won the 
championship of the Men's Day Stu- 
dent Basketball League Monday by 
downing the Seniors in a nip-and-tuck 
battle in which the score was 62 to 
52. In singing their "swan song" to 
basketball competition in this league, 
the upperclassmen put up a stiff fight 
and matched the victors in baskets 
until the final minutes of the contest 
when the reserve power of Coach 
Mueller's boys stood out as fresh men 
were available for garnering the win- 
ning counters. 

"Jabber" Shay led the pack with 
twenty-one points while Captain 
"Lefty" Little hung up nine double- 
deckers from short range. "Steve" 
Metro, "Bud" Boltz and "Bill" Neville 
garnered fifteen, fourteen and thirteen 
points respectively in the fray. 

In the final game of the Men's Day 
Student Basketball League on Wed- 
nesday the Sophomores trimmed the 
Freshmen to go into a tie for second- 
place honors with the yearlings. The

With the numerous harbingers of 
spring lurking here and there on cam- 
pus, our thoughts turn to archery. The 
situation in this field has become quite 
serious because of lack of enthusiasm 
among students. In the girls' division, 
by graduation, we lost one mainstay, 
leaving only four archers who shoot 
high enough scores to be rated by the 
National Archery Association. This 
fact means that we should have at 
least a dozen more girls achieving 
some degree of accomplishment with 
the bow and arrows. Unless a num- 
ber of girls make an attempt at the 
sport, competition with other colleges 
will have to be eliminated. Besides 
being a fascinating and wholesome 
means of filling in leisure moments, 
archery offers to the girls a method 
by which W. A. A. points may be ac- 

For some obscure reason, archery 
among the men on campus seems to 
be dominated by a few fellows who 
are aces at the game. The club presi- 
dent, John Hampton, handles a bow 
with real finesse, just a trifle less 
skillful than topnotchers Shelley and 
Stoner. The situation here calls for 
more enthusiasm; if enough fellows 
become proficient toxophilites, (arch- 
ery enthusiasts) , possibly matches 
will be arranged with men's teams 
from Franklin and Marshall, Lehigh, 
Shippensburg, and with Y. M. C. A. 
teams of York, Lancaster and Harris- 

The sport is one that affords nu- 
merous opportunities for advancement 
as the campus club is affiliated with 
both state and national organizations. 
By means of the annual National Tele- 
graphic Tournament, our school is en- 
abled to compete with colleges and 
universities all over the nation, as 

Seniors Gain First 
Victory Of Year By 
Defeating Sophs 

The Day Students League moved 
along a notch with the classy Juniors 
winning one from the Frosh and the 
Seniors taking the measure of the 

The faltering Seniors surprised the 
Sophs and everyone by humbling the 
second year men 40-18. It was the 
Seniors all the way. They stepped off 
to a seven to four lead in the first 
stanza and were never headed. Both 
teams had trouble finding the range 
in the first half which ended 18-9. In 
the third canto the Seniors, led by 
Shay and Youse, made victory certain 
by slashing the cords for thirteen 
points. Both teams tired in the late 
stages of the game, but the victors 
managed to add 9 while the Sophs 
tallied 3. Shay and Youse both gar- 
nered thirteen, while Horner and Ed- 
wards had seven and six respectively 
for the losers. Swope, Shay, and Hor- 
ner left the game via the foul route. 

The aggressive Juniors found little 
difficulty in downing the Frosh 41-34. 
The league pace setters took the lead 
early and breezed to an easy victory. 
Metro tacked on 15 points to his year- 
ly total, with Captain Urich coming 
next with nine. Fake did his part for 
the Frosh with 12, followed by Yoder 
with eight and Bucher with seven.

small reposeful figure, the incredible 
little master with his earnest eyes" — 
wrote on the occasion of the pianist's 
Jubilee concert: "Josef Hofmann is 
still quiet, reposeful, earnest, a seri- 
ous musician, a great and self-effac- 
ing artist. This is no virtuoso living 
for virtuosity alone and content with 
its rewards, but an artist — simple, 
modest, and sincere." 

Hofmann himself has said, "I learn 
more from my students than they 
learn from me." That may be — but 
from the vast numbers of students 
who flock to the Hofmann concerts in 
all countries and climes, it would seem 
that it is they who think they have 
much to learn from the great virtu- 

The late W. J. Henderson, dean of 
New York critics, noted particularly 
at Hofmann's Carnegie Hall concerts, 
"the music-lovers who never miss the 
great things of musical life, and many 
teachers and students armed with 
sheet music and pencils, busily taking 
notes on the interpretations." 

His popularity as a concert artist 
is evident by the fact that when the 
New York World's Fair "Hall of Mu- 
sic" was dedicated on the opening day, 
the choice of soloist was — Josef Hof- 
mann. In Newark, New Jersey, a few 
weeks later, he attracted a throng of 
25,000 in an open air concert. There 
followed in quick succession that same 
summer the New York Lewisohn Sta- 
dium, Robin Hood Dell, Philadelphia, 
Ravinia Park in Chicago, the Holly- 
wood Bowl in California — in each 
place the same huge throngs of peo- 

In New York City in but one year 
(from April 1938 to April 1939) Josef 
Hofmann, in five sold-out Carnegie 
Hall concerts, and in two sold-out 
Lewisohn stadium appearances, played 
to 52,000 paid admissions in that city 
alone, which is a record without par- 
allel in musical annals.

College Extends 
Summer Session 
To Twelve weeks 

The Lebanon Valley College Sum- 
jjjer School Bulletin, the May issue of 
monthly college Bulletin, is now 
ready for distribution. Dr. Milton L. 
Stokes, Director of Summer School, 
was in complete charge of issuing the 
bulletin and is anxious to have a copy 
f jt in the hands of all those inter- 
ested in summer school as soon as pos- 

To enable students to speed up their 
education, there will be a change in 
the regular summer school schedule 
for the 1942 season. 

"Previous summer sessions of the 
college have been limited to a period 
of six weeks. This summer, like many 
colleges and universities throughout 
the country, Lebanon Valley College 
is offering a twelve weeks' program 
to meet the needs of students in the 
regular college sessions and others for 
an accelerated program of study in 
order that they may meet the require- 
ments for a college degree before pos- 
sible induction in the armed services 
of the nation; and in order to speed 
up the educational program of those 
students preparing to enter medical 
schools, engineering schools and other 
graduate schools. 

"The twelve weeks' summer course 
will begin June 2 and close August 
1st. Students wishing a six weeks' 
course may enter June 2nd or June 
22nd. Students may enter summer 
school June 2nd, June 22nd or August 

Those who have not received a copy 
°f the 1942 Summer School Bulletin

trar's Office.

German Meeting 
Features Music 

Last evening members of the Ger- 
man Club were introduced to a differ- 
ent program. Instead of the usual 
rounds of conversations and readings 
in the language, a program of Ger- 
man music and poetry occupied the 
interests of the students. 

The program chairman, Robert V. 
Mays, planning that the evening 
should be one which would lead to 
further appreciation of cultural links 
produced by the old masters of Ger- 
many. The program was so received, 
that the members voted that a com- 
mittee be appointed to reproduce a 
"German Culture Night" on a larger 
scale for the entire campus. 

Sarah Blauch rendered two selec- 
tions, "Still Wie dir Nacht" and "Ich 
Liebe Dich." Miss Lena L. Lietzau 
read selections from Goethe, the cele- 
brated lyrical poet of Germany. Hans 
Uberseder read a short biography of 
the poet's life. 

The conservatory cooperated in 
making the meeting a success by pro- 
viding the finest vocal recordings of 
the great masterpieces of German 
composers. The evening was brought 
to a close by the group singing the 
famous folk song "Die Lorelei." 


According to a cablegram received 
by Dr. Samuel Zeigler from the Unit- 
ed Church of China, the Rebers, mis- 
sionary alumni of L. V. C, are "in- 
terned in Hong Kong but are safe." 

Joseph Battista 
Returns From Tour 
Through Florida 

Joseph Battista, professor of piano 
at Lebanon Valley College, recently 
returned from a trip to Florida, where 
he played on Wednesday, March 11, 
for the Four Arts Society of Palm 
Beach. His concert, which proved to 
be most successful, was sponsored by 
Princess Alexis Zalstemm Zalesky. 

The program, which was designed 
for popular appeal plus versatility, 
began with Mr. Battista's playing of 
a piano version of the "Star Span- 
gled Banner" by the celebrated pian- 
ist, Josef Hofmann. In addition the 
program included Beethoven's "Moon- 
light Sonata"; "Variations on a 
Theem by Paganini," Brahms, a com- 
position considered to be among the 
most difficult for piano. 

As a gesture to Madama Guiomar 
Novaes, the Brazilian pianist who 
made possible Mr. Battista's South 
American tour last summer, he in- 
cluded in his program the suite, 
"Memories of Childhood," composed 
by her husband, Octavio Pinto.

The audience sat in total darkness. 
The only light in the auditorium was 
that which emanated from a belt of 
overhead lights. On the stage sat Jo- 
sef Hofmann, "dean of American pi- 
anists," quietly answering the ap- 
plause of his admirers with nocturnes 
and other sleep-conducing composi- 
tions, but no one slept. It was a black- 
out concert— something new to all in- 
cluding Mr. Hofmann. 

"This is the first time I play during 
a blackout. I enjoy it very much," he 
remarked after the concert. "I make 
so much noise for you all evening that 
I had a chance to make up to you. I 
play music to harmonize with the soft 
light and let you sleep." 

His encore just before the blackout 
was the spirited Rachmaninoff Prel- 
ude in C Sharp Minor. Then with the 
lights out he played music of a differ- 
ent contrast. The opportunity to re- 
lax came to an end with The Turkish 
March from the Ruins of Athens. He 
closed the entire performance with 
the Star Spangled Banner. 

But the twenty-minute encore 
period was not the whole concert. 
Josef Hofmann enjoyed his music as

the curtains of the Engle Hall stage 
will part for the Kalo-Delphian show- 
ing of Larry Johnson's brilliant com- 
edy, Mary's Other Husband. This will 
be the initiation of Kalo's weekend 
celebration in honor of its sixty-fifth 
Anniversary. The festivities will be 
continued on Saturday, March 21, at

A cast of nine Kalo-Delphians have 
rolled up their sleeves and let down 
their hair to polish their final cues 
for tomorrow night's performance. 
The plot of the play begins with Mary 
Marshall, romantic young wife of 
Harvey Marshall who takes great de- 
light in elaborating upon the truth 
of things. Harvey is all right, but 
he has so little money that Mary's 
Aunt Emily objects to him. Hoping 
to sell Emily Paisley the idea that 
her husband is O. K., Mary employs 
her pet hobby of truth elaboration in 
a correspondence. Aunt Emily decides 
to visit her niece and her prosperous 
husband. Complications begin to stir. 

The Marshalls hire a maid, a butler 
and additional household impressions. 
The butler turns out to be an ex-con- 
vict. At the last minute Harvey must 
pose as the butler. When the maid 
makes love to the butler and Aunt 
Emily wants Harvey's signature and 
Mary "borrows" another husband,

Batter Up! 

With most of the country 
gradually becoming filled with 
the fever and spirit of Amer- 
ica's favorite sport as reports 
roll in from spring training 
camps, Lebanon Valley has once 
again started its own pre-season 
drills for the coming baseball 
campaign. For over a week there 
have been a score of boys warm- 
ing up in the gymnasium wait- 
ing for the first possible chance 
to get out on the diamond and 
get their bats swinging. 

Sure, it looks as though we're 
going to have a good season if 
— if we eliminate the strike 
which the team already has 
against it. That strike — as you 
do, or should, know — is that for 
the past three seasons the base- 
ball teams of L. V. have had 
very poor support from the 
bleachers. In fact, the student 
body hasn't even filled the bill 
as bench warmers. 

Of the three major sports on 
campus, baseball has received 
the least recognition and support 
in spite of the fact that it has 
just as many enthusiastic can- 
didates and talented athletes 
giving their time and effort as 
football and basketball. 

Come on you potential but in- 
animate grandstanders ! Let's 
follow the ball. Let's turn that 
first strike into a hit when the 
umpire starts the first game 
with "Batter up!" 

Eve-Extension Notes 

Classes were brought to a rather 
abrupt close last Thurcday evening, 
when L. V. C. had its first practice 
blackout. Those of us who were not 
in class that particular evening are 
wondering whether it might not be 
a good idea to issue instructions to 
all eve students, so that if it were 
ever necessary to have a blackout 
while classes were in session we would 
knew just what procedure to follow 
in order to cooperate to the fullest 
extent with the campus wardens and 
air raid police. Of course, we all hope 
most sincerely that an air raid over 
Annville is a totally remote prob- 
ability, but believe just as sincerely 
that preparedness is now an absolute 
necessity — and we do want to know 
how to do our part. 

Those Summer School Bulletins 
which were issued last week look 
mighty interesting to many of us 
who were really looking forward to 
summer classes j but there's one point 
in this connection about which we are 
all rather dubious — just how much 
commuting will our suddenly precious 
itires withstand? That seems to be 
the main topic of conversation where- 
ever eve or extension school students 
gather these days, and if any of you 
dear people can ferret out a solution, 
please, please, please let us know!

The Freshman's Fate 

The shades of night were drawing 

As through the Monroe Valley passed 
A frosh, who bore 'mid snow and ice 
A banner with the strange device 

His brow was pale: his lids beneath 
Flapped, syncopating with his teeth; 
And like a bullfrog croaking song 
The accents of that unknown tongue, 
Excelsior ! 

In happy farms he saw the light 
Of household fires gleam warm and 

Above, the rugged Rund Kopf shone 
And from his lips escaped a groan 

"Arf, arf" exclaimed his faithful 

Young Daisy Maigh, who loved to 

A day upon the country side: 
But loud that bullfrog voice replied 

"0 stay" the maiden said, "and rest 
Thy weary head upon this breast!" 
The frosh did pause upon his way 
Hallucinations are okay! 

Onward he toiled, forgetting all, 
Upward he climbed upon the wall, 
While in between his feet in fun 
Daisy Maigh did romp and run. 

At last he reached the dizzy height: 
The valley swam before his sights, 
He brought upon the fancied fair: 
A voice carried through the startled 


The traveller with faithful hound, 
Half buried in the folds was found 
Of a vast banner, whose device 
Still glowed amid the snow and ice, 

This is the moral of the tale: 
He who would wander must not talk 
Lest he receive from his own face 
The literary coup de grace.

"0 Say Can You See" — patriotism blooms again — at least so it seemed 
when the Star Spangled Banner rang through Engle's noble portals from 
nearly every room — but what a letdown — only a methods assignment and 
we didn't recite anyway! 

Wonder who paid his second semester tuition with apricots and peaches ? 
Daisy Maigh seems to prefer chalk. (It's wonderful what a year or two 
at L. V. will do to your appetite.) By the way, did you know that Herby's 
eggs require the feminine touch at breakfast? 

The Y. W. had good luck with their Bad Luck Party. Did you notice 
Beckner's snazzy technique in the umbrella dance? He and that gal Kay 
met too darn often — sumpin' fishy I would say. 

Have you met the Deacon's best girl? We sure are glad to have her 
here. So is the Deacon, look at him beam! 

Both of our musicians deluxe have a new interest. Jicki and Vim — 
Tetty and Bony. Oh I've got my mix all talked up. I mean Betty and Jim 
— Vicki and Tony — aw gee, you get the point. 

Here are some BARE facts from the newspapers D. Alberts wrapped 
around himself at 2 A. M. the other morning when some '"nasty boys" locked 
him outside. But what we'd like to know is how in the heck he managed 
that confident "good morning" to Mike and his wife? Even the best of us 
gets locked out once in a while. What else do you think would have moved 
M. E. G. to sport that — O, so red — coat of Shillott's? 

Seems like every gal has a private secretary since phone duty went into 
effect. Any messages boys? Leave them with the girl who answers. But 
this is war, they will all be censored! 

Have you seen Walt's battle scars yet? You DON'T know how it hap- 
pened? Well, it was partly Bartley's fault. You seen when Walt was 
Don-ning his hat (oh-h we can't go on). 

Double trouble and Doris aren't only alliterative, they're synonomous! 
'Stoo bad you don't have a twin sister. Take a tip from Garneta, she's got 
double trouble too, but keeps them a couple'a hundred miles apart. 

What do you think of guys who wear tux to a blackout? Hans, Walt, 
Harry and Jim seem to think it the thing to do. Good night, if the party 
is going formal, WE'LL have to wear shoes! 

Streepy was a wandering boy during Lebanon's blackout. Arrived at 
the High School in time for the Star Spangled Banner. Shall we pass the 
hat and buy you a compass? Prof. Rutledge wandered the other night 
too. Arrived here from N. Y. at 5 A. M. — tish, tish. Did the concert last 
that LONG? 

Hear ye — all you commentators, judgment passers and bull throwers on 
the subject of war! Little Miss Trygve Struble has it all solved. Quote "Any- 
one who goes up in an airplane will win the war." Unquote Take a tip and 
"Keep 'Em Flying." 

P. S. Sorry George Stine. We apologize. You were not at the 
spaghetti party in Lebanon. When they devour steak and French Fries 
can we use your name?

On the Clothes 9 lin e 

The new spring collections 


wartime as clearly as any headli nes 
There is an entirely new look, a neiy 
spirit. Far from impeding fashi 0n 
fabric rationing and the need f j 
clothes conservation has had an invig 
orating effect on design. The challenge 
to ingenuity has been magnificently 

New lines are slimmer, more ec 
nomical. Everywhere lean, narrow 
treatments are stressed, and there 
is not a waste inch of fabric to be 
seen. Skirts, though sparingly narro w 
are enlivened by draped treatments 
and the very important pegtop. Eco- 
nomically tight evening skirts reveal 
beguiling slits. Prints are more wide^ 
ly spaced, in line with dye restric- 
tions, and neutral colors are not only 
smart but patriotic. Slacks are here 
until victory. Bicycling clothes are 
not simply high fashion, but a sub- 
stantial gesture toward tire conser- 

Parallel to the mood for economy 
there runs a psychological trend to- 
ward clothes that lift the spirit and 
spur the courage, not only of the 
wearer but of the beholder. There's 
a strong accent on femininity in the 
belief that men in uniform partic- 
ularly want a woman to look like a 
woman. The universal feeling is for 
clothes than can stand vigorous de- 
fense activity, and yet bring a gleam 
to a man's eye. Low-gathered neck- 
lines, drawstring tops, frilly lingerine 
touches and deceptively fragile look- 
ing gilets are all calculated to keep 
the armed forces cheerful. 

Over and above the need for fash- 
ions that will lift morale is the 
essential need for clothes that will 
look and wear well this year, next 
year, and for the duration. In the 
question of durability, wool comes in 
for particular attention. After April 
5th, wool manufacturers will be per- 
mitted to use only 10% virgin wool, 
the rest to be made up of re-worked 
wools and substitute fibres. That 
means that 100 per cent wools will 
soon be collectars' items. When the 
all-wool fabrics now in stock are ex- 
hausted, there simply won't be any 
more. The conservation and "make 
it last" efforts the government is 
urging on all commodities is ob- 
viously of prime importance in the 
case of woolens. If you fall for one 
of the new suit-dresses or terse 
efficient gray flannels so 


adapted to USO and civilian defense 
work, now is the time to care for 
them as never before. Try from the 
very first wearing to keep them fresh 
and well-pressed, and make a point of 
proper hanging and brushing. 

Nothing can prolong the life °* 
your precious wools so much as ex- 
pert professional cleaning. The smal 
amount saved on doubtful cleaning 
cannot make up for possible harm 
and loss of life to your clothes. Now, 
more than ever, quality cleaning lS 
imperative. The life of your clothe* 
can be almost unbelievably prolong 
by regular, expert care, and tn 
means painstaking attention to van 
textile properties, individual sp ^ 
ting, careful handwork, and spe^ 1 
pains with trim. 

The National Association of Clea^ 
ers and Dyers points out that the n 
blends of rayon and wool will rtf^ 
particularly special care. Indivi 
spots may be difficult to banish 
less the cleaner knows the effe ^ rS . 
spot-removal agents on both 

A trip to him will probably jjo^

to regard as "that old thing, ^ 
Since you soon won't know ^

Frock Announces 
Hard Grid Schedule 
For 1942 Season 

Late last week Athletic Director 
Jerry Frock released the 1942 foot- 
ball schedule planned for the Lebanon 
Valley College Flying Dutchmen. Most 
of the opponents are found to have 
been met on the gridiron by the Val- 
leyites in the past season and in years 
gone by. 

The season will open on September 
26th when the Frockmen travel to 
Lewisburg to do battle with the Buck- 
nell Bisons in a return match of last 
year's game which saw the upstate 
team defeat the Valley 13-7. The sec- 
ond opponent, Moravian, will be met 
on the latter's field at Bethlehem un- 
der the arc lights. Moravian and L. 
V. C. have each recorded two victor- 
ies over each other in the current ri- 
valry which began in 1938. Last year 
the Greyhounds emerged victorious 
13-6. An out of state aggregation, 
City College of New York, will play 
host to Lebanon Valley on October 
10 in the big city. "Benny" Fried- 
man's boys were smothered at the Her- 
shey Chocolate Bowl by the Blue and 
White last fall to the tune of 33-7. 

The next two games on the schedule 
find opponents who have not appeared 
on the gridiron against the Dutchmen 
for some time. Doggie Julian's Muh- 
lenberg Mules and the Drexel Dragons 
will furnish the opposition on the next 
two successive weekends. At this point 
in the season, the Valley gridders will 
enjoy a respite from competition, in- 
asmuch as a game has not been sched- 
uled for October 31st as yet. 

On the first weekend in November, 
the Frockmen will play host to the 
Juniata Indians in the annual Home- 
coming fray on the L. V. C. gridiron. 
The Swartz-coached aggregation suf- 
fered an 18-0 defeat in the season fi- 
nale of the Blue and White eleven in 
1941. In the next scheduled contest, 
the Albright Lions will attempt to 
avenge last fall's 27-13 trouncing at 
the hands of the gallant band of 
Dutchmen. The last game of the grid- 
iron season will take place, between 
the Valleyites and the Franklin and 
Marshall Diplomats at the Lancaster 
field. A scoreless tie resulted in last 
year's tussle between L. V. C. and 
the Diplomats late in the season. The 
only home game on the schedule is 
that with the Juniata Indians on 
Homecoming Day. 

Sept. 26 — Bucknell at Lewisburg. 
Oct. 2 — Moravian at Bethlehem. 
Oct. 10— C C. N. Y. at New York 

Oct. 17 — Muhlenberg at Allentown. 
Oct. 24 — Drexel at Philadelphia. 
Oct. 31 — Open date. 
N ov 7 — Juniata at Annville. 
Nov. 14 — Albright at Reading. 
Nov. 21 — Franklin and Marshall at 

ever, a rejuvenated Senior team held 
the same Junior squad on even terms 
during the second half, only to lose 
60-38. The Seniors were led in their 
last half drive by "Dandy Dick" Sei- 
verling who tallied 18 points and Chris 
Wornas who registered 10. 

The evening's nightcap was a thrill- 
er in which the Sophs squeezed thru 
with a 35-33 triumph over the Fresh- 
men. The Freshmen came from behind 
after a poor first quarter to gain a 24- 
18 lead at half-time. However, a third 
quarter Soph drive netted them the 
lead which they never relinquished. 
Altman with 14 counters again led the 
Sophs in scoring, while Withers was 
high for the Frosh with 11. The Soph- 
omores introduced a new court star in 
Kenny Fidler who moved down the 
axemen of the Frosh very capably in 
his basketball debut.

Coach Jerry Frock 
Gives Out Schedule 
For Spring Baseball 

Athletic Director Jerome Frock an- 
nounced an eleven game schedule this 
week for the Lebanon Valley baseball 
squad. Concurrent with the announce 
ment Coach Mike Intrieri issued first 
call for limbering up exercises in the 
gym for the diamond hopefuls. 

Coach Intrieri is faced with the 
problem of rebuilding a keystone com- 
bination to replace that of Staley and 
Mease, the latter who left school and 
the former reporting this year for a 
mound assignment. Numerous veter- 
ans reported for infield and outfield 
berths, but among the new candidates 
there seem to be a shortage of pitchers 
and catchers. 

The schedule as released is as fol- 

Apr. 23 — Elizabethtown Away 

Apr. 27 — Moravian Away 

Apr. 30 — Ursinus Away 

Apr. 24 — or

March 28— Play Day at Ship- 


! Sports in Shorts I 

E By Louise 1 

On Saturday, March 28, there will 
be a Baskqtball Play Day held at 
Shippiensburg State Teachers' Col- 
lege. The affair is an annual one in 
which ithe same four colleges par- 
ticipate. They are Cedar Crest, Ship- 
pensburg, Susquehanna and Lebanon 
Valley. Each year a different school 
acts as hostess, and this year the 
honor fell to the lot of Shippens- 

In previous years, the opposing 
teams were 1 determined by drawing 
for the earlier games, then in the 
lateir period losers played losers while 
winners played winners. This year, 
instead of following tradition, the 
authorities have decided to arrange 
the schedule so that each team will 
have the opportunity to play each 
other team. This means that the 
days' schedule will include six games. 
The periods of the games will, of 
course, have to be shortened some- 

Miss Henderson is planning to take 
about twelve girls to play basketball, 
and probably one archer will accom- 
pany the crowd to take advantage 
of the indoor archery range at the 
state teachers' college. This play day 
will mark the end of the basketball 
season for the honor squad. However, 
there may be a numbr of inter-class 
games to round out the early spring 
days until archery again gets into 
full swing. 










Senior Combination 
Reaches Finals in 
Handball Playoffs 

In three matches played in the 
doubles handball tournament very 
surprising results were obtained. Reb- 
er and Morey emerged as finalists in 
the lower bracket but will have to 
wait some time until the opponents 
will be determined in the upper group 
of pairings. 

Reber and Morey had difficulty 
getting by Frantz and Rhodes in a 
match ending with scores of 21-18, 

20- 22, and 21-12. Meanwhile Uhrich 
and Bamberger had bowled over 
Souders and Hummel 21-10, 21-13 in 
another scheduled playoff meeting. 
The latter pair of juniors appeared 
favorites to topple Reber and Morey 
and seemed to be doing quite well at 
the end of the first game, winning 

21- 19. The seniors came back to take 
the second game, 21-12 and then went 
on to win the final frame and cop the 
match, 19-21, 21-12, and 21-17. None 
of the teams in the upper bracket 
having gone into action, the winning 
team will have a brief respite until 
called to play for the championship 

Blackout Concert 

Play-Offs and All-Star 

Games Are Postponed 

Due to unforeseen circumstances, 
the play-off games between the 
championship teams of the dormitory 
and day student basketball league and 
the so-called All Star teams of each 
league, have been postponed. It had 
been planned to have the games play- 
ed last evening. Unfortunately, how- 
ever, this was not found feasible and 
the dates for the contests have been 
changed to next Tuesday evening. 

The championship in the dormitory 
league was determined Tuesday eve- 
ning in the gymnasium as will be not- 
ed elsewhere in our columns. The 
Day Student aggregation, the high 
stepping Juniors are girding for bat- 
tle in fine style. The ambitious title 
holders have gone into training and 
staged a scrimmage yesterday at noon 
with a pickup group of day students. 

The members composing the team 
known as the Dormitory All Stars 
was not available at the time La Vie 
Collegienne went to press. The team 
of Day Student All Stars has been 
seriously considering the contest with 
the dormitory group. The names of 
the Day Student team was published 
last week. The results of both games 
will appear in our columns in the 
next issue.

age of musical dynamite, as though 
fatigued by a busy day with his toys, 
dropped his arms to his side and 
dropped his head forward. 

Though Beethoven is his favorite, 
Mr. Hofmann played but one of this 
composer's works. His superb rendi- 
tion of Sonata in F Minor ("Appas- 
sionata") was a laudable tribute to 
his composer-idol. 

Meeting Mr. Hofmann after the con-

cert was an unprecedented thrill. 
There was nothing blase about him. 
He had no air of undue sophistication. 
Josef Hofmann was talkative and 
youthful. He had a slight accent which 
only made his speech more pleasing. 
His. almost-bald head was stranded 
spasmodically by an unrelenting crop 
of greying red hair. 

Mr. Hofmann is a musician and an 
artist. Perhaps the critics are right 
when they say he is decadent, but 
what really matters is that he is a 
man. He is a man of years who has 
not outgrown his teens. He is fresh. 
His freshness is still evident in his

proved to be a golden opportunity for 
a belated honeymoon. While in Palm

Mr. and Mrs. Battista took a short

w Vie Organizes 
New Staff for '42; 
Shaner to be Editor 

n Tuesday afternoon, March 24, 
the faculty approved the selections for 
staff- Martha Davies, retiring editor- 
in-chief, has chosen David Shaner as 
her successor, while Joseph Carr has 
design ated Edward Stansfield to take 
his portfolio. 

Shaner is a member of the junior 
class. During the past school term 
he spent the greater part of his time 
on the '43 Quittie of which he is the 
Editor. He also served LA VIE in 
the capacity of Associate Editor and 
as a reporter for two years. 

Editing the Valley's weekly news 
organ with Shaner will be Louise Kel- 
ler, a graduate from the sports staff 
to the post of Associate Editor. De- 
partmental editors will be News Edi- 
tor, Bruce Souders, retained from the 
present staff; Associate News Editor, 
Anthony Wallace; Features Editor, 
Genevieve Stansfield; Sports Editor, 
Dennis Sherk; and Business Manager,

staff are those names of Emma Kath- 
erine Dunkle and Winifred Gantt, who 
is a member of the evening extension 

Juniors Name Girl 
To Edit '44 Quittie 

At the junior class meeting held 
on Wednesday, March 25, at 1:00 P. 
M., Marian M. Kreider was elected 
editor of the 1944 Quittapahilla. Busi- 
ness manager for the annual publica- 
tion will be Edward Stansfield. 

Marian Kreider will be the first wo- 
man student to serve as year-book edi- 
tor in the memory of the present col- 
lege generation. She has had literary 
experience as a member of LA VIE 
COLLEGIENNE. A member of the 
Chemistry Club, Green Blotter Club, 
and German Club, she also has main- 
tained high scholastic rating. Her bus- 
iness manager has simultaneously 
been selected to serve in like capacity 

Appointments to the Quittie staff 
will be made in the immediate future, 
Editor Kreider states. 


Stansfield, who is a sophomore, has 
been serving as Carr's assistant dur- 
ing the year. He was the 1941 presi- 
dent of his class and a member of the 
Y. M. C. A. Cabinet. 

Since this is the last edition of LA 
VIE COLLEGIENNE to be printed 
by the present staff, the new editors 
will assume their duties with the next 
•ssue, three weeks hence. 

Intrieri Secures 
Instructors for 
First Aid Classes 

Plans are nearing completion for 
the various first aid classes scheduled 
to be offered on the campus. Thirty 
freshmen girls have signed up for a 
first aid course in hygiene and an ad- 
ditional thirty-seven have registered 
in Donald Bartley's course, compul- 
sory for air wardens and auxiliary 
police, and also open to others desir- 
ing the training. 

Coach Mike Intrieri's freshman hy- 
giene class will substitute a first aid 
course for their hygiene periods. In- 
structors are provided through Scott 
Burgoon, head of Red Cross first aid 
in Lebanon. The earliest that an in- 
structor can be secured is the 8th of 
April, when a class of instructors is

La Vie Goes to Kalo 

There are dances and then there are 
D ANCES. Sometimes you have a good 
time and sometimes you have a GOOD 
^e. i n this case we are talking 
a W the DANCE celebrating the six- 
ty-fifth anniversary of the Kalozetean 
Literary Society. We are talking 
about the GOOD time everyone had 
at the Hershey Hotel last Saturday 

Now it all happened this way — 
Eaf l Boltz was elected anniversary 
Resident by the Kalo men and he got 
work right away and appointed 
!j me pretty wide-awake committees. 
When these committees were finished 
J e y had decided on Don Peebles' or- 
? es tra from Harrisburg (with 
c eor ge Moore at the piano and Hub 

Urr y on cornet), on neat red pro- 
pm s w ith a sort of peep hole place 
a ° r the Kalo seal, and on having Dr. 
Mrs. S. H. Derickson, Dr. and 

4^" Yj Earl Li £ ht > Dr> and Mrs 

^ 0s Black, and Prof, and Mrs. F. K 
as chaperons

fei l en ^ e ear ^ v c° mers began 

into the Spanish room, after 

He at the Hotel or the °y ster Bar ' 

iow.f° Und the bright lights and mir- 
(jjj* floor a cheery contrast to the 
^PPy weather. Peebles had his 
an d singer, Patty Mathews, all 

set up with the extra "music box" to 
fill in between the dances, and all 
ready to start with their "up in the 
air" endings. 

In spite of the stiff shirt fronts the 
atmosphere was definitely free and 
easy with gay greetings echoing back 
and forth, especially to such alumm 
as Stanley Bulota, Bob Spohn, the 
Billetts, Bill Scherfel, George Grow, 
Grabusky, Maury Erdman, Butch Her- 
man with Jo Ernst and guests such as 
Miss Gillespie, Bill Steele. Then there 
were jokes called back and forth 
about Silliman's extra-special tea- 
bone steak and Sally and Gollam's 
late arrival. Shay claimed forty per- 
cent of the gown's were blue, but, so 
help us, Ellen was one of a much 
smaller majority so you can see where 
his eyes were. High point of the fun 
was Mary Mehaffey leading off in 
La Conga which had all doing the 
one-two-three kick around the ball- 
room. , . 

Needless to say, the GOOD time 
was over too soon and even those who 
were almost floored, namely Polly 
Keller and Marie Werner, were sorry 
to read that good night had their next 
number— Kalo was one year older of- 
ficially and everyone was one DANCE 
happier, socially. 

Brulator Makes Plans

gymnasium at 8:00 P. M. The price

Phi Alpha Epsilon was founded at 
Lebanon Valley in 1935 for those stu- 
dents who have maintained an aver- 
age of eighty-eight per cent during 
their first three and one-half years 
of college and are of good moral 
character. This organization answers 
to the same purpose as does the na- 
tional honor society, Phi Beta Kappa, 
of which there is no chapter at L. V. 
C. The society's purpose is to pro- 
mote interest in the scholastic side of 
college life. The other activities of 
the students are varied and numerous. 

Mildred Cross has been active as 
manager of the women's debating 
team as well as in debating itself. 
This Clionian and member of the W. 
S. G. A. board is also on the La Vie 
staff. She was on the '42 Quittie 
staff and serves as an assistant in the 
education department. 

Martha Davies is editor of La Vie 
Collegienne and was a member of the 
'42 Quittie staff. She has served on 
the women's "Y" cabinet for three 
years and is a member of the Del- 
phian Literary Society, Green

\ "Mary's Other Husband" Scores Hit] 

"Mary's Other Husband" proved to 
be just that type of comedy that Leb- 
anon Valley is most interested in see- 
ing right now. From the criticisms 
and remarks passed by students fol- 
lowing the play we judged that the 
majority are best entertained by this 
type of production. However, some 
felt that this comedy followed too 
closely on the heels of "Through the 
Night." Perhaps Philo and Clio will 
balance the year's schedule by choos- 
ing something of a more serious na- 
ture since a taste of all types of 
plays is what we want. But we did 
like "Mary's Other Husband" and 
congratulations are certainly due Mrs. 
Billett and the entire cast for present- 
ing such a finished production with 
only three weeks preparation! Anoth- 
er general opinion was that the play 
was particularly well cast. In review- 
ing a play it is always difficult to 
determine to whom highest honors 
should go and in this play it is espec- 
ially hard. Many people seemed nat- 
urally adapted to their parts while 
others showed real acting ability. 

Marie Werner was exactly what re- 
hearsals promised she would be. She 
played the part of flighty, romantic 
Mary Marshall just as it should have 
been done. She had a tendency to 

concentrate on the floor of the stage 
but this along with the movements of 
her hands and the changes in her 
voice helped to emphasize the man- 
nerisms of a nervous woman. We 
would like to see Marie in many dif- 
ferent roles and we hope that this 
one excellent performance dosen't re- 
sult in typing her for only this kind 
of a part. Louise Boger and Nick 
Dorazio made an impression on 
everybody. Although Louise has been 
playing large roles in campus plays 
since she was a sophomore this part 
of a comical maid gave her one of 
the best opportunities she has had to 
display her acting ability. Oscar Sey- 
lar improved his performance greatly 
in this play. Some of us had thought 
that he had a natural tendency to 
over-act from his work in "What 
Every Woman Knows." But he really 
distinguished himself as the fond, ob- 
jecting husband and he also made a 
very convincing James. That walk 
and tone were so beautifully ridicu- 

Esther Zandel and Lizzette Fisher 
made their switch very successfully. 
A week and a half before the play 
and after each had learned the oppo- 
site part Mrs. Billett made the

Next issue of La Vie will flourish 
the new mast head with the 1942-43 
staff taking this publication into its 
hands. According to precedent this 
change is made in the spring in or- 
der that adjustment can be made with 
the aid of those who have experience 
behind them. 

We, the old staff, have our fare- 
wells to make, our appreciation to ex- 
press, our advice to give, and our good 
luck wishes to say. 

FAREWELL— It has been fun try- 
ing to dig up scoops, to please you, 
and to record what is happening. 
Drudgery as it seemed at the time, 
we would probably like to try for an- 
other year to see if we could not make 
a better job of it. The year was too 
short for us to function as the ser- 
viceable machine we would have lik- 
ed to be. Quite suddenly we discov- 
er ourselves out of a job with only 
one exit— to attempt as graceful a 
goodbye as possible. And so it is 
"Goodbye, until we meet you in the 

man or woman, faculty, or adminis- 
tration aiding La Vie Collegienne 
in securing its material, in cooperat- 
ing in obtaining and preserving news, 
to every lowly reporter who dogged 
the heels of the news-makers, and to 
the business department who watched 
the purse-strings and got the papers 
to you. 

ADVICE— This paper belongs tc 
every last one of you. It wants to 
print what interests you. When you 
have anything for print do not sit 
back and try mental telepathy, our 
experience proves it does not work. 
Contact the staff, give them accurate 
accounts, and above all do not ignore 
the reporter who happens to trail 
you. If you have complained about 
the paper, remember it is as much 
your fault as the fellow's you are 

GOOD LUCK— To the new staff, to 
the juniors who are soon to take the 
offices of responsibility, and to Leb- 
anon Valley College. 

The End 

Eve-Extension Notes 

We wish there were some way of 
convincing a certain State Police Offi- 
cer that that particular member of 
our group whom he encountered com- 
ing rather too rapidly down the Sus- 
quehanna Trail last Friday evening 
isn't really a careless driver, and 
wasn't being deliberately thoughtless. 
It's simply that "Hurry, hurry, hur- 
ry!" has become so much the tempo 
of most eve students' lives that it's a 
real temptation to travel just a bit 
faster than permissible — Annville 
bound and faced with a long straight 
stretch of empty highway. 

Another evening student caught in 
the rush of Friday night was Mr. Ken- 
ny, of Harrisburg. With never a min- 
ute for supper in town, Mr. Kenny 
had his mother pack a nice substan- 
tial lunch, hoping he's find time dur- 
ing the course of the evening at Ann- 
ville to relax and enjoy his sandwich- 
es. But, somehow or other, the hours 
slipped by, and Mr. Kenny found him- 
self at ten o'clock, ready to return 
to Harrisburg, the lunch still intact. 
It wasn't long before someone else in 
the car made this discovery, and upon 
his suggestion Mr. Kenny decided to 
have his much-belated supper then 
and there. Politely he asked the five 
other passengers if they would care 
for a sandwich or a piece of cake. 
THAT was his big mistake! When the 
bag came back to him, having made 
the circuit of the car, I doubt that it 
held more than a lone orange, and 
possibly an olive or two. Poor Mr. 
Kenny! He'll tell you at any time that 
it just doesn't pay to carry your lunch 
—despite the economy involved. But 
the idea had quite an appeal to the 
rest of us, and we're already planning 
future Friday nite picnics on the way 
home from school. If any of you other 
eve students would like to join us, 
we'd be delighted to have you. There's 
just one stipulation — please bring 
your own lunch! 

Thanks to the Kalo and Delphian 
Literary Societies, those of us who 
had no eight o'clock class March 20th 
enjoyed very much seeing, "Mary's 
Other Husband." We had been told 
that it was a comedy, guaranteed to 
relieve our minds at least temporarily 
of war and the tire situation. We 
must admit most appreciatively that 
it did that and much more.

change. It was evidently a good one 
because the girls did well in their fi- 
nal roles. Lizzette made a formal, 
stiff Aunt Emmy with a most re- 
markable voice! Aunt Emmy was one 
of the characters that was much talk- 
ed of afterwards. Esther succeeded 
in being absolutely natural in her 
role of Mary's sophisticated friend. 

Her easy stage presence was a good 
foil for the restless y.m iger woman. 
Carl Derr made his debut in this 
play and quite a spectacular one it 
was! Because he seemed to throw him- 
self into his part so completely some 
thought that he over-acted a little, 
but actually it had to be that way to 
be at all effective His entrances and 
exits amused the audience almost as 
much as his lines did. For those who 
are still worried — the white dooi 
led to the ki.chen! 


Disc Data 

The Beethoven Symphony No. \ • 
C Major is historically important 
only because it is the first work h 
that composer in the symphonic v -i 
but also because it is the first of n - 
works that were to raise that form 6 
music to its greatest height. Althou°L 
there is something of Mozart 
Hayden in this composition there c 
be no mistake that there is also 
great deal of Beethoven's own indivi^ 
ual touch. His ability with this i 0Yth 
of music and his creative style are 
well represented in this work. jj e 
thoven the originator is shown by th e 
opening chord of the symphony j- 
which he breaks from the pedantic 
style of the day and introduces the 
composition with a dissonant seventh 
chord played by the winds and strings 
The opening dissonance coupled with 
the harmony of the chords just before 
the violins take up the theme give the 
work a modernity not prevalent in the 
symphonic forms of the day. 

The initial performance of thi« 
work occurred in Vienna on April 2 
1800, and was the composer's first hn- 
portant orchestral work. It is most 
interesting to note that some of the 
qualities of the more mature Beetho- 
ven are evident in this symphony, and 
that they are handled with the cer- 
tainty that typifies his later symphon- 
ic works. Although it may not be con- 
sidered his greatest symphony, for it 
is hardly comparable to the immor- 
tal Symphony No. 9, it will give the 
listener a great deal of pleasure and 
musical inspiration. 

The Beethoven Symphony No. 1 in 
C Major is very ably handled by Felix 
Weingartner and the Vienna Philhar- 
monic Orchestra. The four movements 
are recorded on Columbia Masterwork 
Records with excellence of tone. 

It is well to mention at this point 
that Columbia has developed a new 
method of recording which proves to 
be the greatest advancement in many 
years. The central core of the record 
is coated with several laminations of 
a highly sensitized material that re- 
produces the music with new fidelity 
and naturalness of tone, and the sur- 
face noise is reduced fifty-five and 
three-tenths percent. The record col- 
lector will do well to hear these re- 
cordings; he will find it a very profit- 
able experience.

play steadied somewhat in the third 
canto until the dorm outfit lengthened 
their lead to 20-10 on deuces by 
Schmaltzer, Phillips, and Beckner. The 
Day Students on the other hand were 
still handcuffed and scored only six 
points on field goals by Yeats, Neville 
and Little. 

In the final chapter the Day Stu- 
dents put on a determined rally with 
Little finding the hoop for a brace of 
field goals while Uhrich stuck up two 
set shots from the back-court. The 
handicap was too great to overcome 
however, as Newbaker and Fritsche 
tallied for the Dorm to sew up the 
flag for their team. 

Dick Beckner led the scoring for 
the evening with eight points on four 
field goals, while Schmaltzer and Phil- 
lips contributed six points apiece. For 
the Day Students, "Lefty" Little and 
"Boop" Uhrich each scored six count- 
ers. Neither team was able to notch a 
point from the charity line, the Dorm 
team missing seven attempts and the

Shay and Wise Meet 
Reber and Morey In 
Final H'ball Match 

The final round of the doubles hand- 
ball tournament was reached this week 
when Ralph Shay and Johnny Wise 
narrowly defeated Dwight Fake and 
John Henry Wise in a three game 
semi-final match. Shay and Wise thus 
gained the right to meet Roger Morey 
and Earl Reber in the championship 
round by virtue of their victory over 
Fake and Light. 

The winners had previously trounc- 
ed Sam Stein and Earl Troup in their 
first scheduled match, 21-11 and 21- 

16. Light and Fake had upset Little 
and Patschke last week in a closely 
played contest, 19-21, 21-19, and 21- 

17. The freshmen simply had too much 
on the ball in their first match, for 
the game of the junior pair bogged 
down after the start of the second set. 
Patschke, singles champ, kept the los- 
er from being completely disgraced in 
the match with the up and coming 
first year men. 

In the match played this week, Shay 
and Wise were out in front all along 
in the first game, but the dogged re- 
sistance of the losers allowed them 
but a five point margin of victory, 
21-16. The frosh came back in the 
second frame and completely baffled 
their more experienced opponents to 
win, 21-6. The winning duo found 
themselves trailing 8-2 soon after the 
final chukker was begun, but rallied 
in fine style to turn back the team of 
Fake and Light 21-10. 

Wise and Shay will meet the senior 
team of Reber and Morey who ad- 
vanced to the top rung of their brack 
et last week by downing Uhrich and 
Bamberger, 19-21, 21-12, 21-17. Neith- 
er has been on the winning team in 
the past three years of play and will 
be gunning for their opponents who 
are odds-on favorites to take the cham 
pionship. Wise has been a consistent 
performer in tournament play and 
last year played in the final contest 
while Shay teamed up with Little last 
eason to take the championship lau- 
rels after having played on the win 
ning combination two years ago. 

M. D. S. League Ends 
Basketball Tourney 

The Men's Day Student Basketball 
League operated with smooth efficien- 
cy through the efforts of "Mike" In- 
Weri who refereed the majority of 
the games and supplied competent 
substitutes when he was unable to at- 
tend. The "Axe League" displayed 
a better brand of basketball this year 
as competition was keener and games 
We re hotly contested. 

An overtime period featured the 
opening game of the league when the 
Hhs conquered the Juniors 37-36. 
lm e ran out with the teams dead- 
0ck ed at 33-all, so the captains agreed 
U ^° n a three-minute extra/f>eriod

Juniors Down Sophs 
To Take Title In 
Dorm B. B. League 

Last Thursday afternoon the Alum- 
ni Gym was a scene of wild bedlam 
as the Juniors copped the Men's Intra 
dorm Basketball League in a thrilling 
play-off battle with a fighting Sopho 
more five, 42-41. 

The Juniors started out fast and 
posted a 15-10 lead at the end of the 
first quarter. They increased their 
lead to 29-21 at the half. During this 
time Beckner and Schmaltzer tallied 
18 points between them, while the 
Sophomores were kept in the running 
by Smith's set shots and Altman's fast 

The Sophs came out with new spirit 
in the second half and started pecking 
away at the upper-classmen's lead 
bringing the tally up to 35-30 with 
one quarter to go. The Juniors rallied 
again in the last quarter and went 
ahead 39-31. At this point, the Sophs 
changed their defense, but were un 
able to catch the Juniors in the few 
minutes left, falling one field goal 
short of victory. 

The Juniors were led in their cham 
pionship drive by their scoring aces 
Beckner, who scored 16 points, and 
Hank Schmaltzer. Newbaker, Fritsche 
and Detambel performed capably m 
the back court, while Philips and 
Crall aided in the forecourt. For the

M. D. S. All Stars 
Take Dorm Team 
By 45-34 Victory 

The All-Star team from the Men's 
Day Student League trounced the 
team of All-Stars from the dormitory 
league in an extremely hard-fought 
battle. The score of 45-34 does not 
indicate how close the play was dur- 
ing the fray. In fact, thirty-six fouls 
were called by the two officials, 
"Mike" Intrieri and Harry Miller, for 
the infraction of the rules. 

The boys from the campus got off 
to an early lead but failed to be out 
in front at the quarter mark. Baskets 
were made alternately during the first 
half which ended with the hitch-hik- 
ers having a 21-19 advantage. 

The third chukker proved to be the 
most profitable to the Day Students 
as they outscored their opponents fif- 
teen to seven and then held the lead 
until the final whistle, by gaining 
nine points to the Dorm boys' eight. 

Dwight Fake, the lanky Frosh cen- 
ter of the Day Student All- Stars, led 
the scorers with five double-deckers 
and two singletons for a total of 12 
points, while "Dick" Horner, who was 
ejected from the game in the third 
period for personal fouls, added eight 
counters to the winner's total. Cap- 
tain Ralph Shay and "Bud" Boltz each 
garnered three goals from the field 
during the massacre. 

"Chris" Wornas and "Tony" Ven- 
tresca with six points apiece were 
high for the losers. "Jane" Withers 
threw in two deuces and a toss from 
the foul line as well as contributing 
a good game from the floor along 
with Captain "Dandy Dick" Seiverling 
who was allowed but four counters in 
the scoring column by the efficient 
guarding of the commuter's All-Star 
outfit. "Herbie" Altman, high scor- 
er was held scoreless from a field and 


I Sports in Shorts \ 

I By Louise § 

Since the inter-dormitory basketball 
competition has come to an end with 
the day studentettes way out in front, 
the interest has turned to competition 
among classes. In the first of these 
inter-class games, the Frosh downed 
the Sophs by a 27-11 score. In the 
ranks of the losers, "Hon" Light 
grabbed top honors in scoring by roll- 
ing up six pointers, while Troutman 
and Yocum switched positions of 
guard and forward to try some razzle- 
dazzle playing. Among the winners, 
Dottie Moyer accounted for ten points, 
Thelma Kinzel for five points, while 
Waller, Stonecipher and Bomgardner 
divided equally the twelve remaining 
points. Evelyn Hiester and Yvonne 
Rabb played commendably in guard 

The second fray had to be forfeited 
by the Junior-Senior combination, be- 
cause of lack of players. However, the 
generous yearlings contributed one 
player and the show went on, result- 
ing in a 26-26 tie. Again Kinzel's 
name appears among the starring 
lassies, as she rolled in five field goals 
and two foul shots to bring her total 
to 12. Moyer and Bush accounted for 
the remaining points, while Judy Ul- 
mer played guard with real finesse. 
The Frosh member of the Junior-Sen- 
ior team, Jeanne Waller, was respon- 
sible for twelve of the upperclassmen's 
points, while Raab assisted Holly and 
Geyer in the guard section. 

In the most recent court competi- 
tion, the Sophs opposed the upper- 
class combination, and the former met 
defeat to the tune of 27-20. Rather 
than forfeit another game, the Junior- 
Senior girls played with only four 
members. "Johnnie" came through 
for the first time this season, making 
up for lost time by contributing 23 of 
th 27 points belonging to the Junior- 
Senior gang. Polly Keller tossed in 
the other four points. These two for- 
wards were quite ably assisted by 
guards Geyer and Holly. In the Soph 
aggregation, "Ginnie" Bernhard was 
top scorer with eight counters to her 
credit. Haver stock came next with six 
points, and the guard playing of Bar- 
bara Converse must be mentioned.

Soph Ace Wins 
Individual Honors 
In Dorm League 

The Men's Dorm Basketball League 
came to a close with the Junior an- 
nexing the championship in a bitter 
playoff game with the Sophs. How- 
ever, a Sophomore, Herbie Altman 
took the high scoring championship 
by tallying 161 points during the sea- 
son with 70 field goals and 21 charity 
tosses. Second was Dick Beckner with 
129 points.

At the end of the first round the

place. However, the Juniors took five 
straight games to displace both low- 
er classes as leader. However, a 
strong Soph comeback shoved them 
into the playoff where the Juniors 
were victorious.

Dutchmen Yearlings 
In Four B. B. Games 

The curtain has rung down on an- 
other Basketball season at Lebanon 
Valley. The Yearlings post a some- 
what better record than the Varsity, 
but notwithstanding this fact, the 
first year men did not finish the year 
with a flourish of trumpets. The 
Frockmen turned in a most disastrous 
season in winning only four out of 
fourteen contests for a .285 percent- 

The first game of the current cam- 
paign saw the inexperienced yearlings 
getting trounced 37-19 by the fast 
stepping Ursinus College Cubs. The 
Frosh, led by John Schreiber, rallied 
in the last frame to outpoint their 

The most impressive victory of the 
41-42 period was chalked up against 
the young Diplomats of F. and M. 
Outclassed and outpassed by the visit- 
ors in the first two stanzas, the Blue 
and White first year passers looked 
helpless behind a 20-5 first half score. 
Coming back after the rest period the 
youngsters stepped up the tempo to 
outpoint the Diplomats 29-9 and came 
on to win standing up. 

Unable to overcome a sixteen point 
first half deficit, the Frockmen lost 
a 49-32 decision to the Dickinson Col- 
lege first year men. Turning on the 
customary last minute rally the Fresh- 
men dribblers seriously threatened the 
Muhlenberg passers, but fell short in 
the final count, 44-35. 

The Blue and White outfit failed 
to snap the losing streak on the next 
two occasions, losing first to Hershey 
Junior College at Hershey 34-46 and 
to the G-burg little Bullets at Gettys- 
burg 16-36. 

Hitting their stride around the mid- 
dle of February, the young Dutchmen 
scampered about the Lebanon High 
School spacious court in an early ag- 
gressive spurt to put the game on ice 
as they bested the Ursinus Frosh 40- 
22. The following game they again 
peppered their way to victory when 
they met the Hershey Industrial 
School lads to win with points to 
spare 41-30. 

The Boys in Blue were rudely awak- 
ened from their dreamings when they 
encountered the Hershey Junior Col- 
legians the following week. With the 
laurels almost in their hands the Val- 
ley passers petered out in the closing 
from to lose 42-47. 

On February 21 the yearlings jour- 
neyed to Albright with the minimum 
of 5 players due to a seige of injur- 
ies and snapped a nine game winning 
streak of the Albright Frosh. Beriont, 
Housel and Wasileski hit the cords 
consistently to enable the Blue and 
White to register the 30-28 upset. 

The Gettysburg frosh eked out a 
six point victory over the Froshmen 
by virtue of a last quarter spurt af- 
ter the Valley squad had gone ahead 
with a one point lead shortly before 
the game ended. The visitors played 
a cool and sturdy game to emerge vic- 
torious by a 46-40 score. 

Although the amazing five-man 
freshman team gave the favored Dip- 
lomat yearlings quite a scare, they 
were not able to clinch the victory 
losing in the end by a 30-34 count. 
In their game with the Hershey In- 
dustrial School dribblers the Frosh 
faded in the last period in the face 
of a brilliant rally to lose 35-31 to the 
Spartans on the latter's court. The 
final game of the season saw the Val- 
leyites dropping a rather listless fray 
to the Albright Lion Cubs 34-56. 

Wasileski showed up best for the 
yearlings with a total of 104 markers 
for the season. Schreiber tallied 82 
points with Housel and Harriger com- 
ing up with 55 and 30 points respec- 



Debating Teams 
Bring Season To End 

Last evening the men's debating 
team met the affirmative team of Muh- 
lenburg College and argued the nega- 
tive side of the question: "Resolved, 
that the Federal Government should 
regulate by law all labor unions in the 
United States — constitutionality con- 
ceded." There was no decision. The 
L. V. C. team was composed of Rob- 
ert Whisler and Paul Lipsitz. 

Tomorrow afternoon at 3 o'clock 
this same team will match their argu- 
ments with an affirmative team from 
Moravian College, over the same ques- 

Tuesday afternoon, March 31, the 
men's affirmative team, composed of 
Pete Olenchuk and Oscar Seyler, will 
journey to Moravian campus to meet 
their negative team on the above reso- 

Last Thursday the girls' debating 
team composed of Mildred Cross and 
Mary Mehaffey journeyed to Blue 
Ridge College at New Windsor, Mary- 
land. They upheld the affirmative side 
of the labor question. Three judges 
presided at the debate and the L. V. 
C. team won the decision by a score 
of 79-77. On the same afternoon the 
Blue Ridge affirmative team met L. 
V. C. represented by Esther Zandel 
and Gertrude Huss on our campus in 
a non-decision debate. These two de- 
bates closed the year's schedule for 
the girls' teams.

Book Reviews 

International Federation of Democ- 
racies by Julia E. Johnson. 
This book is a compilation of the 
concepts of international federation 
arranged in debate form. It brings 
together many of the ideas which are 
found widely scattered over the think- 
ing world, and presents them through 
the written utterances of various sup- 
porters or detractors. It should stim- 
ulate thought and lead to a better ap- 
preciation of the issues involved and 
to a more profound study of them. 

Government In Wartime Europe ed- 
ited by Harold Zink and Taylor 

In a world at war any study of the 
international situation should include 
at least a general knowledge of the 
effect of war upon the governments 
involved. This book reports upon and 
discusses this very subject as it re- 
lates to England, Germany, Soviet 
Russia, Italy, France, Norway, Swed- 
en and the Balkans. It is the out- 
growth of papers delivered before the 
American Political Science Associa-

Mr. Churchill, A Biography by Philip 

Where is there another to match 
this colossus, fighting in the front line 
of civilization, infusing a faltering 
world with his own indomitable spir- 
it? How many millions hang on hi3 
words, rally to his objectives, cheer 
his deeds? In all their dramatic his- 
tory, the English people have had no 
greater, more beloved leader. 

Mr. Churchill's extraordinary career 
has given Philip Guedalla a subject 
worthy of his perfected artistry. The 
able and witty pen has in Mr. Chur- 
chill its happiest and most human 
subject ... as a small, red-headed pu- 
pil, the naughtiest boy in the class, as 
a subaltern of cavalry — every place 
of his great life is portrayed intimate- 
ly and brilliantly.

the heel of them in a 31-24 fray which 
was one of the roughest in the league. 

Captain Dwight Fake set the league 
high-scoring record for an individual 
in one game when he scored thirteen 
goals from the field and two charity 
throws for a grand total of twenty- 
eight points to lead his Frosh five in 
a 65-46 trouncing of the Seniors. 

The insertion of Youse into the Sen- 
ior lineup proved disastrous to the 
Sophs as he scored thirteen points in 
their 40-18 triumph. The victory 
proved to be the only one of the cam- 
paign as the fourth-year men clinched 
thes bottom position for the duration. 

Those unbeatable Juniors knocked 
off the Frosh in a close battle 41-34 
to stay up in the lead. "Steve" Metro 
led the attack with fifteen counters in 
this well-balanced combination. 

The Juniors won top honors in the 
league by dropping ten more points 
then the rejuvenated Seniors in the 
highest scoring contest of the year. 
The score read 62-52 when the smoke 
of the battle cleared. 

In the fight for second position the 
Sophs defeated the Frosh in the final 
game by the score of 35-24 to end a 
basketball campaign marked with good 
sportsmanship and fair play.

their last respects to Dr. J. R. Engle, 
president of the Board of Trustees, 
w ho passed away in the Lebanon San-

Are Dates For 
Music Festival 

The tenth annual spring Music Fes- 
tival of the Lebanon Valley College 
Conservatory of Music, always the 
outstanding musical event of the year, 
will be held in Engle Hall on Thurs- 
day and Friday evenings, April 23 
and 24, at eight o'clock. 

Admission prices have been raised 
slightly above former quotations be- 
cause of the increase in the costs in- 
volved. Admission charges are forty 
cents for Thursday's program and fif- 
ty-five cents for Friday's performance. 
Those wishing to attend both concerts 
can do so at a saving by purchasing 
a combination ticket for eighty-five 
cents. Tickets are being sold by the 
Conservatory students. 

The Festival will open on Thursday 
evening when the Glee Club and Band 
make their first joint appearance on 
the campus this season. The Glee Club 
will sing the most popular numbers 
of its recent concert tour. 

The Band, making its first appear- 
ance in this immediate vicinity, will 
include a group of classical, modern 
and novelty numbers from its reper- 
toire. Hazel Fornoff, piano, and John 
Talnack, cornet, will be the soloists 
while Professor Edward P. Rutledge 

On Friday night a chorus of ninety 
voices accompanied by the college or- 
chestra with Professor R. Porter 
Campbell at the organ will present 
Saint Saens' "Samson and Delilah." 
Soloists for the occasion will be Mil- 
dred Gangwer, soprano, who was 
graduated from the Conservatory in 
'39 and is now serving as Supervisor 
of Music in the Paulsboro, N. J., 
schools; Myron Taylor, tenor, who is 
at present a member of the Conserva- 
tory faculty; and Hugh Thomeson, 
bass, of the Julliard School of Music, 
New York City. Professor Rutledge 
will again direct.

There is nobody who doesn't appre- 
ciate appreciation. This is an axiom 
rarely heard, and more rarely applied. 
In your daily rounds of the campus, 
do you pause to extend a hearty 
"Thank You" to the fellow who picks 
up the books you've dropped, who tells 
you that you're wanted in the office, 
who returns the pen you've lost? Or 
do you take for granted these insigni- 
ficant courtesies that others are not 
obliged to extend? If you're looking 
for a ride to Lebanon, do you simply 
say, "I'll be ready at 4:30," or do you 
rearrange your words so that they 
form a polite request? 

If you can answer the preceding 
questions in a self-satisfying manner, 
the complaints aren't for you. If, how- 
ever, the contrary is true, a little 
spring check-up is in order. By pro- 
jecting yourself into the other per- 
son's situation, you will recognize the 
value of an expression of sincere ap- 
preciaton, and then apply the rule 
of doing unto others as you would 
I ave them do unto you. And believe 
it or not, you can do it all without one 
cent expense! Try it for just one 

Eve-Extension Notes 

The only significant feature of the 
evening school calendar for the last 
couple weeks seems to be the utter 
lack of news. Nothing, absolutely 
nothing, seems to have happened to 
anybody. Perhaps that's a good thing 
— but it does rather leave us at a loss 
for notes for the column. 

There is one bit of news, however, 
which will be of interest to many. I 
had a short talk with Viola Fager 
the other evening, and she tells me 
that the coming semester will find her 
back among the Eve students once 
more. That will be nice — we've all 
missed her. Honestly, tho', I expected 
that very thing to happen, for "Vi" 
has been a part of L. V. C. evening 
and extension classes for so many 
years that I was almost certain she 
couldn't leave us altogether. 

Ho hum! Wonder if Julia Robin- 
son's date a few evenings ago found 
her rather on the drowsy side. Or 
could it have been the company that 
made her sleep so peacefully all the 
way home from school, despite the 
constant din of conversation about 
her? Now that we stop to consider, 
our feelings are really a bit hurt at 
that possibility. 

How About It? . . . 

About this time of the year we all 
suddenly become aware of the fact 
that the end of school is not very 
many chapel periods away, and that 
soon blue books will be flourishing 
once more. It is also quite obvious 
to all of us that summer has really de- 
livered the final knock-out punch to 
Old Man Winter, and that every young 
man will turn his fancy lightly to 
thoughts of something or other. 

One thing to which many students 
on campus are now turning their thots 
is tennis, and they are eagerly watch- 
ing the progress of the work being 
done on the courts. At one glance it 
can readily be seen that very little 
progress has been made. By no means, 
however, should there be any reflec- 
tion cast on Mr. Witmeyer who is try- 
ing to whip the courts into shape. He 
is no superman, and he certainly can- 
not spend time and half-time on the 
job. Upperclassmen will recall that 
two of the courts were not available 
at the end of school last year, which 
is additional evidence that this is no 
one-man job. 

A possible solution to the problem 
would be most propitious at this point, 
and this one is hereby suggested. It 

Book Reviews 

Windswept, Mary Ellen Chase. 

"Windswept" is the name of a house 
on a high promontory of land miles 
from villages or towns. Its name sug- 
gests alike the nature of its back- 
ground and the character of its atmos- 
phere. It is the home of the Marston 
family, built under tragic circum- 
stances by John Marston, lived in and 
loved by his children and by their chil- 

"Windswept" is a way of life as 
well as an absorbing story of tragedy 
and conflict, pain and pleasure, sac- 
rifice and fulfillment. Against its wide, 
somber background of wind and sea 
and sky, those who know it, find the 
answers to their questions and through 
it discover that life in a confused 
world may preserve its order, nobil- 
ity, and richness. 

Nothing commonplace could happen 
here, nothing mediocre or mean. 
Whatever dramas were enacted here 
upon this stage, behind this orchestra 
of wind and surf, should by right call 
forth in those who played their parts 
only constancy and honor. . . .

the time of his death he served as 
president of the Board of Trustees of

secretary of the board and chairman 
of the finance committee. Dr. Engle 
also held high offices at Bonebrake

flew Scribes Assume 
Duties With Sports 
Staff for 41-42 Year 

yyjth this issue we bid adieu to 
Shay an ^ ms sta ^ °^ 1941-42. And 
to him and to his cohorts we dedicate 
t j,j S week's Sport Page. We say good- 
ie with fear and trembling realizing 
f U H well that his departure is like tak- 
ing the very "H" off "well." With 
-Shay ff oes another senior, "Bud" Boltz, 
also has been a prime factor in 
t j, e issues of the past. 

The spot left vacant by the well 
deserved advancement of Louise Kel- 
ler, girls' sports editor, to associate 
editor of the paper, is to be filled by 
Martha Wilt. Martha has been a lead- 
eI jn women's sports on campus, a 
stalwart guard on the "lassies" Valley 
tossers, and a high scoring "winger" 
of no little renown on the hockey field. 

Veteran John Paul Hummel, Hum- 
meltown's pride and joy, alone re- 
mains of the 1941-42 reporters. With 
these two scribes serving as a nucleus, 
newsboys, Altman, Hultin and Harri- 
ger, have been added to the staff. Each 
of the trio has had some previous 
journalistic experience. "Herbie" Alt- 
raan, the Philadelphia playboy, has 
shown his versatility as an athlete in 
spite of his size handicap. Several of 
his fascicles have already appeared on 
this page. Hultin, gridman from Lau- 
rence Harbor, N. J., is a gladiator of 
parts, a scholar, and a lover. Miles 
Harriger, hailing from Beaverdale 
where he was a three-letter man, com- 
pletes the roster for the ensuing year.

Shay and Wise Win 
Handball Laurels 
In Straight Games 

Ralph Shay and John Wise were 
crowned the handball doubles cham- 
pions of the Men Day Students when 
they downed Earl Reber and Roger 
Morey in a close match of 22-20 and 
21-15. The champs were forced to dis- 
play extraordinary form and put forth 
reserve energy in their final contest. 

John Henry Light and Dwight Fake 
conquered "Lefty" Little and Franklin 
Patschke before meeting their down- 
fall at the hands of the potential 
champions. Shay and Wise disposed 
of Earl Troup and Sam Stein in the 
other pairing of the upper bracket in 
an easy manner. 

In the lower bracket of the tourna- 
ment pairings Bruce Souders and 
John Hummel were eliminated by Bob 
Uhrich and John Bamberger in the 
first round play. Reber and Morey 
were extended by Ted Frantz and Ja- 
cob Rhodes before they finally van- 
quished the latter pair by scores of 
21-18, 20-22, and 21-12. 

The most hotly-contested match of 
the tournament was the semi-final 
clash in which Reber and Morey down- 
ed Uhrich and Bamberger to gain the 
right to meet Shay and Wise in the 
title contest. Bob and John took the 
first game by 19-21, but fell under the 
superior attack of the victors in the 
second and third contests when they 
lost 21-12 and 21-17. Earl and Roger 
than were trampled by the champions 
in no uncertain manner as Ralph and 
John proved their worthiness of the

Preparation for the afternoon of May 

Several innovations are intended 
f °r this year's Pageant. Instead of 
the traditional throne for the May 
Queen and her court, the Coronation

an old Southern Mansion of the per- 
iod of 1840. Four little girls instead 
°f the usual two will attend the 
Queen. Miss Henderson reports that 
*e Coronation itself will be conduct- 
ed in a manner entirely different 
fr °nr the usual, although at this time 
s ^ e cannot reveal the secret.

Courts Take Shape 
As Call Is Made 
For Racquet Men 

The L. V. C. tennis team will open 
up their regular season when they will 
travel to Allentown on Tuesday, April 
21, to engage in a match with the 
Muhlenberg Mules. Individual mem- 
bers of the squad made several trips 
to Coleman's Park in Lebanon where 
they have been holding free-lance 

At a meeting yesterday old and new 
members of the tennis team elected 
Alton Smith to act as captain this 
season. New aspirants who were pres- 
ent are John Paul Hummel, Cyril Lit- 
tle, Franklin Patschke, Robert Ham- 
bright, Anthony Wallace, Bruce Sou- 
ders, William Neville, Gerald Kauff- 
man, Charles Shelley, and John Horn. 
Paul Fisher is a holdover from last 
year's squad. 

"Jerry" Frock will not coach the 
team this year. One of the members 
of the team will act as manager. An 
elimination of the new members will 
be held soon and the winners will be 
given berths on the regular team. 

The Valley team will visit Dickin- 
son College on April 25th where the 
second match will be held.

Yocum Directs Boys 

In Extended Chapel 

Last Friday, April 10, in an ex- 
tended chapel period the Hershey In- 
dustrial School Boys' Chorus under 
the direction of George E. Yocum a 
graduate of the Conservatory in 39, 
presented a varied musical program. 
Numbers were sung by the entire 
chorus, and vocal solos as well as 
quartet and sextet numbers were pre- 

Now that the sun is shining more 
brightly and the temperature has gone 
up somewhat, thoughts turn to the 
out-of-doors and not the classroom. So 
we immediately turned in the direc- 
tion of the college athletic field. When 
we arrived there several days ago 
we found over two dozen eager and 
ambitious diamond aspirants tossing 
balls back and forth to each other 
with a lively chatter. The group of 
ball players showed quite some spirit 
throughout the remainder of the prac- 
tice as the afternoon wore on. Many 
had gone to the field soon after lunch, 
but were still peppering the ball 
around when the sun began to sink in- 
to the horizon. 

But the thought suddenly conies to 
mind while we are strolling back to 
the dormitory that perhaps the play- 
ers will find the same old condition 
facing them when the season begins 
in another week — empty bleachers. 
Now there's something we can't under- 
stand. We find that many of our 
friends and fellow students will take 
a whole day off to travel a good dis- 
tance to sit in the last row of center 
field bleachers in a distant city'to wit- 
ness a big league ball game when they 
might see a first-rate baseball contest 
here on our own lot at no expense to 
themselves and with little bother. 

Most of us at any rate would waste 
the afternoon in a card game or loaf- 
ing about the dorm. It might do the 
majority of us a bit of good to stretch 
the old legs and get a bit of sunshine 
and fresh air for a change. But we 
suppose that it will be the same this 
year as before. The boys down the 
hall will come in soon after the game 
is over and report that our team was 
narrowly defeated or came through 
in the final inning. Then we proceed 
to tell what we would have done if we 
had been handling the catching chores 
or been coaching the team. 

Why not give our boys a lift by 
walking to the diamond now and then 
to watch them at their practice ses 
sions? Still better, why not make it 
a practice to see every home game on 
the schedule and give a hand to some 
players who are doing their level best 
to produce for the Blue and White? 
And even still better, why should not 
some of our sofa athletes try a hand 
at the game and provide competition 
for the first stringers? Perhaps the 
boy who was only a fair soft-ball play- 
er in gym class might develop into 
the team's best outfielder or a hurler. 
But let's not forget that there is such 
a game as baseball which is recog- 
nized as a varsity sport on the campus 
of Lebanon Valley College.

Archery Team Visits 
Wilson Campus 

On Saturday, April 18, the Wilson 
College co-eds will sponsor an ar- 
chery play day featuring at 10:00 
A. M. a Columbia Round for student 
participation and a clinic for teachers 
of archery. In charge of the clinic 
will be Miss Jean Ainsworth Tinney ( 
National Archery Champion in 1937- 
38, a member of the Wilson faculty. 

Lunch will be served on the campus 
to all participants. The afternoon 
events scheduled for 2:00 -4:00 o'- 
clock will include a clout shoot, ar- 
chery golf, and a roving hunt. These 
activities thus* will afford a real test 
of skill. 

Eight persons will represent Leba- 
non Valley College at the meet, four 
fellows and four girls. To date, the 
names of those eight have not been 
revealed. However, they are expected 
to bring back some new ideas that 
will serve) to stimulate interest in 
the sport. 

Recently, new equipment was pur- 
chased to replace that which has been 
broken and to increase the store so 
that more archers may be accommo- 
dated. Up to this time, only two tar- 
gets have appeared on the range, but 
with weather becoming more propi- 
tious, you may expect to see at least 
two more targets set up for daily use. 

If you are a novice at the game, see 
any of the experienced archers, and 
they will lend any assistance desired 
to help you to hit the bull's eye. 

Frock Initiates 
Spring Training 
For F. B. Squad 

For the first time in the history of 
L. V. C. the college football team is 
having spring football practice 1 . The 
purpose of these daily workouts is to 
attain more nearly perfect physical 
fitness of the athletes and develop 
greater precision in ball -handling. 

The rain and cold did not, in the 
least, prevent the stout-hearted Fly- 
ing Dutchmen from commencing or- 
ganized practice on the L. V. C. ath- 
letic field last Thursday afternoon. 
These daily sessions will continue at 
least through the end of April. 

Only those who are not on the L. 
V. baseball squad are taking part in 
this work which fits in very nicely 
with the national program for the 
development of physical fitness. This, 
necessarily, limits the number of fel- 
lows, but those who are included are 
working conscientiously. 

The boys have been working main- 
ly on physical conditioning, footwork, 
and ball-handling, with a little pass- 
ing and kicking mixed in. 

Large Group 
Reports For 
Baseball Team 

The Lebanon Valley tossers after 
over two weeks of practice are begin- 
ning to shape up as a squad bound to 
cause any opponent plenty of trouble. 
Although "Coach" Intrieri will have 
to depend on many inexperienced 
players, the general cooperative spir- 
it and fight prevalent on the squad 
will more than make up for the lack 
of experience. 

The starting infield will probably 
include John Zerbe at first, Don Stal- 
ey at second, Dick Seiverling at short- 
stop and George Smith at third. 
However, in the event that Staley or 
Seiverling are called upon to pitch. 
Chick Edwards and Eddie Withers 
will be ready to step into the infield 
spots. In reserve are Harry Matala. 
Herbie Altman, Bill Rumpf, and 
Charlie Wolfe. Hard-hitting Ben 
Wasilewski will be relied upon to car- 
ry the catching burden. The outfield 
positions are still open to specula- 
tion. However, it seems probable that 
Charlie Miller will start in left field, 
while Dick Beckner will cover center 
field. The right field slot is being 
closely contested by Herb Greider and 
Dwight Fake. Al Delduco and Bill 
Lloyd complete the list of outfield as- 

The big question mark of the '42 
team is the pitching staff. There 
are five hurlers, none of whom have 
ever pitched a varsity baseball game. 
Don Staley, whose deliveries have 
been extremely baffling so far, will 
in all probabilities be called up to 
pitch the opener. Chuck Newbaker. 
the only southpaw tosser, has also 
shown much improvement although 
quite wild at times. Lloyd Crall has 
come a long way since the opening 
practice and can be counted on for a 
lot of work this season. Bob Mays' 
slow stuff is as difficult as ever to 
connect solidly with. The fifth hurl- 
er, Dick Seiverling, will probably be 
used chiefly in relief roles as he will 
be needed at his infield post. 

At first, the team seemed to lack 
the necessary power, but now the lads* 
are starting to get their batting eyes. 
In recent games, Smith, Staley, Was- 
ilewski, Zerbe, Newbaker, and Wolfe 
really socked the ball hard. The in- 
field's defensive work leaves little to 
be desired. Zerbe and Staley in prac- 
tice games have robbed many batters 
of what seemed sure baseknocks. The 
left side of the infield is also coming 
through with its share of brilliant 
plays. The outfield's defensive play, 
on the other hand, is not quite what 
it should be. Many easy outs are go- 
ing for base hits due to poor judg- 
ment. A little more practice should 
see that weakness pass into oblivion.

Chem Club Holds 
Monthly Meeting 

The monthly meeting of the Chem- 
istry Club was held in the physics lec- 
ture room on Tuesday night, April 
14, in charge of Russel Horst, presi- 
dent of the organization. 

Following the president's round-up 
of news in the field of chemistry, Dr. 
Jermain Porter, associate professor of 
chemistry and physics, lectured on 
"Colors and Colloids." His numerous 
experiments were the interesting fea- 
ture of his discourse. 

The attendance was the largest of 
the season. Among those present were 
Lieutenant Richard Moody, class of 
'40, and recently commissioned in the 
United States Army; Frederick Hu- 
ber, also of the class of '40, and at 
present an assistant in chemistry at 
the University of Cincinnati; and Rob- 
ert Reiff, class of '41, and likewise 
an assistant in chemistry at the Uni- 
versity of Cincinnati. As a result of 
research work indulged in since leav- 
ing Lebanon Valley College, Mr. Hu- 
ber has discovered several new anes- 
thetics which are now being produced 
by the DuPont Chemical Corporation. 

The speaker for next month's meet- 
ing of the Chem Club will be Dr. An- 
drew Bender, professor of chemistry 
at Lebanon Valley.

philo Celebrates 
75th Anniversary 
With Play, Dance 

All plans have been completed for 
philokosmian Literary Society's dia- 
mond anniversary celebration which 
officially begins this evening in Engle 
flail with the joint Philo-Clio produc- 
tion. "The Late Christopher Bean." 
The' week-end's activities will be cli- 
maxed Saturday evening by the dance 
w hich will be held at the Hershey 
Hotel. Anniversary President Rich- 
ard Owen reports that approximately 
seventy couples will be present for 
the affair. 

'The Late Christopher Bean" by 
Sidney Howard had a successful run 
when it was presented on Broadway. 
It is billed as "a funny comedy with 
an amusing ending." The story is that 
of a painter named Christopher Bean 
who had died in a New England vil- 
lage leaving only a few dirty can- 
vasses to pay the doctor for his ef- 
forts to heal. It was a mild surprise 
to Doctor Haggett and his family 
when an old friend of Bean's dropped 
in and paid Bean's old bill and only 
took away a couple of pictures as me- 
mentoes. It was a bigger surprise 
when another old friend of Bean's 
turned up on a similar errand, and 
the biggest of all when a great New 
York art critic arrived to pay his re- 
spects to the memory of the dead ar- 
tist. It was overwhelming when they 
learned that Christopher's works were 
worth a fortune — and how they scurry 
to find them leads to many amusing 
situations. Interesting also is the ef- 
fect that is produced on the minds of 
the characters involved. 

The play's cast includes: Edward 
McFerren, Louise Keller, Mary Me- 
haffey, Virginia Kent, James Brula- 
tour, Robert Yannaccone, Betty Good- 
en, Dennis Sherk and Robert Streepy. 

Eddie Englehart's orchestra from 
Harrisburg will play for the dance 
which will begin at eight? o'clock and 
continue to twelve Saturday evening. 
Chaperones will be President and 
Mrs. Lynch, Dr. and Mrs. Black, and 
Dr - and Mrs. Bailey. 

Recruits Elect

Honor Society Hears 
Horst At Banquet 

On Tuesday, April 28, the Phi Al- 
pha Epsilon honor society had its 
eighth annual banquet at the New 
England Pantry. Speaker of the ev- 
ening was Mr. Miles Horst, a local 
farmer, former Congressman, and na- 
tionally known figure in the agricul- 
tural world. His subject was the rela- 
tions of the United States with South 
America as seen by one who spent sev- 
eral years in the South American 

Presiding at the banquet was Dr. 
A. H. M. Stonecipher, president of the 
society, while Dr. Clyde A. Lynch of- 
fered the prayer and made a few con- 
gratulatory remarks. Those members 
of the 1942 class who received the cer- 
tification of membership were Mildred 
Cross, Martha Davies, Phoebe Geyer, 
Betty Gravell, Ruth Heminway, Mar- 
jorie Holly, Russel Horst, Robert 
Mays, Ralph Shay, and Carl Sherk. 
Robert Heiland was unable to appear.

I Mothers Take Over. Butch Takes Powder { 

| By Heck 1 

Dear Butch: — 

I wish you hadn't fled with the rest of the mob last week-end because I 
did want you to meet my ma. I can't see why you were scared anyway, 
because she's really a lot more fun than I am— and— well, some of the fellows 
stayed around— Smitty, for example. He did take a riding from the gang 
and Mike when he was with Tippy and her mother, but he can take it. And 
Pete stayed— and had a date with Jeanne AND her mother Saturday night 

And Dick Phillips had practically a harem all the time! Bermart and 

Doris didn't miss a minute, even with Mrs. Smith here But maybe it's 

just as well you were ouH of sight, because then my ma could have all the 
attention she deserved. D'ya know, I think they ought to have Mothers' 
Week-end in mid-winter so the mothers wouldn't have quite as much com- 

Pet t My mother got here in time for the concert Friday night, and after that 
we all went to the P-Way, of course. (Quite a lot of the week-end was spent 
there, sponging on Ma - h - It was great! No bills to pay or anything! You 
should have been here!!) . 

That night was my first night on the floor. (Saturday night made two, 
and by Sunday night my bed felt pretty soft again - - - ) Well, there we 
were four of us lined up! in a row— because my roomies ma was here too. 
We chattered and giggled so loud and long after the lights were out that 
we expected Miss Gillespie or the Jiggerboard to pounce on us any minute. 
Fverv time we were just about settled again, my ma would tell us about 
somebody else that got married or died or had a baby back home-then we'd 

TZ «11 over But we finally did get to sleep, even with all oun pet 

" fee on the loose Oh, speaking of pets-Phyl Deitzler's mother 

brought her a canary-and took it back, too-because canaries just arent 

accented as dorm students * , , i

May Day Greetings 

By President Clyde A. Lynch 
"A Day in the Old South" — what 
a happy release from the cruel captiv- 
ity of grim war for burdened minds 
and surcharged hearts! This May Day 
theme invites us to take the restful 
and scenic route into Dixie, 

"the sunny southland 
Where sweet magnolias grow." 

Accepting this gracious invitation, 
we turn our faces toward Old Ken- 
tucky Homes and Swanee Rivers, 
looking for Old Black Joes and teary- 
eyed Suzannas; for there was sadness, 
even in the old South. But there were 
also spirituals to comfort heavy 
hearts, and beautiful melodies expres- 
sive of the spontaneous gaiety of the 
land of cotton have immortalized the 
sights and sounds of the old planta- 
tion. Our campus has become a re- 
constructed plantation; here we are 
permitted to remain for but one brief 
day to laugh with frolicking pickan- 
innies and to meet the Southern gen- 
tlemen and their belles as they step 
out of the 1840's to entertain us with 
typical dances. 

To Miss Esther Henderson, the 
Christian Associations, the band and 
orchestra, and all participating stud- 
ents we extend our hearty congratu- 
lations and express our sincere appre- 
ciation of all the careful planning 
and hard work necessitated by the 
effective staging of this colorful and 
elaborate pageant. We are likewise 
grateful for the valuable services per- 
formed by many students in connec- 
tion with the competitive scholarship 
examinations. Work and play join 
hands on this plantation for a day. 

These examinations have attracted 
a record-breaking number of contest- 
ants to our beautiful campus. Having 
done superior work in high school, 
they are now turning toward college. 
To you, our guests, we extend a gen- 
uine welcome to our College, with a 
(Continued on Page 6, Column 4) 

Tomorrow, Saturday, May 2, Leba- 
non Valley College will conduct what 
may prove to be its last May Day 
Celebration until after the War. A 
tennis match at 9:30 A. M., a pageant 
at 2:00 P. M., and a baseball game 
at 4:00 P. M. will compose the pro- 
gram for the day. The theme for the 
pageant, prepared by Walter Eber- 
sole and Harold Maurer, is "A Day in 
the Old South" (year, about 1840), 
"Uncle Remus, Massa an' Missus an' 
all de' chilluns'll be dere. De'll shout 
an' sing an' ba'bacue in real South- 
ern style." 

The Dance of Morning will an- 
nounce the commencement of the 
great day. At its completion the roy- 
al procession will introduce the 
Queen, Betty Foster, and her Court, 
the Southern Gentlemen with their 
Ladies, and the May Pole Dancers. 

Madam Green will crown the Queen 
in the presence of her Court. Queen 
Foster's Maid of Honor will be Louise 
Boger. Royal train bearers will be 
Kenneth Kreider and Lawrence Rice. 
The fashionable Ladies of the Court 
will be Mary Louise Clark, Virginia 
Goodman, Ruth Heminway, Marguer- 
ite Martin, Betty Shillot, and Victor- 
ia Turco. 

On behalf of the individual classes 
of Lebanon Valley College the class 
presidents will shower the Queen with 
gifts of appreciation. The presidents 
are Carl Sherk, Senior; Walter Eber- 
sole, Junior; James Bachman, Soph- 
omore; and James Brulatour, Fresh- 

The remainder of the Coronation 
party will include a Southern Foot- 
man, Catherine Kreider with her two 
Great Danes, Duke and Gretchen. The 
flower girls at the ceremony will be 
Jane Snyder, Anne Herriot, Mary 
Black, and Trigve Struble. 

With the completion of the Crown- 
ing of the Queen the plantation party 
will begin. Nearby yokels are seduc- 
ed from their chores to dance a Vir- 
ginia Reel with the fairer sex. The

# Hats Off! . . . 

Tomorrow morning in the library 
the first copies of the '43 Quittapa- 
hilla are scheduled for distribution to 
the student body. The natural reac- 
tion of most students to this announce- 
ment will be that of anxiety in anti- 
cipation of what new features the 
book will contain. But will they stop 
to realize the myriad factors involved 
in having the yearbook off the press 
and ready for distribution by May 
Day? It is something which only those 
who are actually connected with edit- 
ing such a publication can fully un- 

The work is divided into three main 
phases — photographic, literary, and 
financial. Then, of course, there are 
many lesser though important angles 
that should be considered, such as typ- 
ing, artwork, and proofreading. Ac- 
complishing all these tasks means sac- 
rificing hours of time, many of which 
would otherwise have been spent at 
study. But editing a yearbook is a 
job which demands the maximum ef- 
fort from everyone involved, and 
therein lies the secret of the success 
that the staff of the '43 Quittie has 
had in producing the yearbook by May 

To those members of the Junior 
Class who so wilfully offered their 
services in this endeavor, recognition 
is due for a job well done. 

# The Play's 

The Thing . . . 

The undertaking of producing a 
play is one that offers a wide variety 
of tasks. It is a regrettable fact that 
so few of us realize what there is to 
such an enterprise in addition to a 
cast of characters. There is, of course, 
the director; it is customary to have 
a faculty member fill that position, 
but if a student were to state such a 
request, he would cerainly be privi- 
leged to act as an assistant in order 
to gain practical experience. 

The stage manager's job is one of 
singular importance; he may make or 
break a play — but he doesn't see his 
name in lights. Furthermore, it takes 
a considerable amount of elbow 
grease; perhaps that accounts for the 
dearth of stage hands. Another of 
the angles to be considered is that of 
light and sound effects; these may or 
may not be handled by the same per- 
son, depending upon the requirements 
of the play being produced. 

There is the somewhat disagreeable 

Eve-Extension Notes 

Mr. Mincemoyer, of Palmyra, a 
teacher at Hershey Industrial School, 
will have a greater distance to travel 
to Friday evening classes during the 
remaining weeks of the semester. Mrs. 
Mincemoyer and he are planning to 
move to Harrisburg in the very near 
future, so he'll be joining the group of 
us commuting from that point. 

It can be done! And we think this 
is an incident worth talking about, 
just to prove that occasionally some- 
one does have sufficient will power to 
make up his mind to do a thing and 
then go ahead with it. Mr. Emerick, 
a member of Dr. Stevenson's Spanish 
class, decided several months ago to 
give up smoking entirely. In addi- 
tion, he signed a gentleman's agree- 
ment with himself that every time he 
felt the least bit tempted to buy a 
pack of cigarettes he would put the 
money he normally would have spent 
for them in a special savings box. 
Result: Mr. Emerick turned up in 
class the other night with a beautiful 
one-hundred dollar bill — the total of 
his savings to date! Makes will-pow- 
er sound mighty worth-while, doesn't 

Spring Fever certainly is evincing 
itself in a number of ways among the 
eve school students. Members of Dr. 
Struble's class in American Literature 
coaxed last Friday night to have at 
least the first hour of the class period 
out on the campus. They weren't suc- 
cessful that particular evening, but 
the idea at least has been planted, and 
if the warm weather continues they 
have high hopes for other out-of-doors 
(Continued on Page 4, Column 4) 

The years 1809 and 1810 were for 
Ludwig Van Beethoven a rich period 
of creative artistry in music, but a 
period of poverty with regard to mate- 
rial circumstances. In 1809 Vienna 
was stricken with the fear of another 
attack by Napoleon Bonaparte, Em- 
peror of France. This fear caused 
Beethoven to consider leaving Vienna 
to accept the position of Kapellmeis- 
ter of the King of Westphalia. How- 
ever, thru the combined efforts of the 
Princes Lobkowitz and Kinsky, and 
the young Archduke Rudolph he was 
induced to stay in Vienna. The three 
of them offered Beethoven a yearly 
stipend that along with his other in- 
come would provide for him a com- 
fortable living during the rest of his 
life. An unhappy event prevented this 
stipend from granting Beethoven the 
comforts he had expected; for in the 
spring of 1809 war was declared caus- 
ing the currency to fall to half its ori- 
ginal value. 

Beethoven remained in Vienna 
throughout the occupation, and it was 
during this period that his young pu- 
pil, Karl Czerny, presented for the 
first time in public the "Emperor" 
Concerto No. 5 in E Flat Major. At 
this first hearing a young French of- 
ficer made the statement that it was, 
"an Emperor among concertos." The 
sobriquet has stuck to the concerto 
throughout the ensuing years. The 
Emperor Concerto lacks the inner con- 
flict that was present in most of the 
work. It throbs with virility and gives 
(Continued on Page 6, Column 2) 

but skill-requiring task of the make- 
up artist. This is a duty that is es- 
sential to a good production and one 
that deserves a word of merit when 
well done. The properties and ward- 
robe are two phases of production that 
require an artistic touch and an en- 
ergetic temperament. 

Thus you see that even though your 
name is not among the cast, there are 
numerous duties that must be done, 
and may be made interesting, instruc- 
tive and beneficial, if you are willing 
to put forth some effort.

on Dottie. And they say he has business to take care of somewhere off-stage

[From The Wing s ] 

This evening, the curtain will 
on "The Late Christopher Bean" 
Sidney Howard, the play selected J? 
Philo-Clio for its annual attempt * 
"dramah." Directing the product' ^ 
will be Dr. George Struble, with 
ward McFerren heading the cast 
the male lead. Also participating Jj 
be Mary Mehaffey, Virginia Ken' 
Louise Keller, Robert Yannacc on 1 ' 
Robert Streepy, Betty Good e !' 
James Brulatour, and Den n ' 
Sherk. Among these, McFerren, J? 
haffey, and Sherk were members tt 
the cast of "The White Steed," which 
was presented by Philo-Clio last y^. 
Sherk is really the veteran f tfc 
group, having also appeared in "Arm 
and the Man," "The Importance J 
Being Earnest," and "What Even- 
Woman Knows." Louise Keller at) ' 
peared in a one-act play entitled, "Ai," 
Raid," which was one of a series p rf) 
duced by the Wig and Buckle Club 
last year. Kent, Gooden, Yannaccone 
Streepy, and Brulatour will run the 
gamut of emotions for the first time- 
on the boards in Engle Hall. 

In view of the many handicaps 
which have been dogging the steps of 
the director and cast, no prediction 
as to the success of the play will be 
made at this time. But campus play- 
goers are asked to keep several facts 
in mind. The play has been in re- 
hearsal three weeks, but only during 
the past week was every member able 
to be present at rehearsals. Other ac- 
tivities such as the Music Festival in- 
terfered tremendously with the prog- 
ress of the play. As a result, play 
books were much in evidence at prac- 
tices. Another deplorable fact is that 
the chapel stage was made available 
for the first time last Tuesday even- 
ing, permitting only three rehearsals 
there. It is factors such as these which 
detract from a polished production to 
which every group of actors and ac- 
tresses should strive. However, isn't 
there an old saying common to the 
theatre to the effect that if the rehear- 
sals for a play aren't what they should 
be, the play will invariably be a suc- 
cess the night it is given? 

Notes Collected At Random . . . 's 
too bad the cast of "Teapot on the 
Rocks" had such an unpleasant experi- 
ence in its debut at Indiantown Gap. 
Perhaps it would be a better policy to 
let the "mountain come to Moham- 
med" . . . watch this Kent gal in her 
initial stage appearance at L. V. C 
tonight. She is definite dramatic ma- 
terial ... as you probably know, the 
New York Drama Critics' Circle chose 
Noel Coward's "Blithe Spirit" as the 
year's best play of foreign authorship- 
The critics decided that none of the 
plays of American authorship P r0 ' 
duced in New York this season was 

worthy of its annual award as a P rlZ 
play, even though Burns Mantle

Joseph Battist a, 
Ambassador Of 
Good Will 

By John Hampton 

Joseph Battista, pianist, may well 
e his title changed to Joseph Bat- 
t ista, musician par excellence and am- 
bassador of goodwill. 

May issue of Etude contains 

a ar ticle which is sure to interest all 
the students and friends of Professor 
gattista at Lebanon Valley College. It 
■ a story how a Brazilian girl and a 
Philadelphia boy, pianists both, helped 
weave the bond of friendship between 
t jie United States and its Southern 

In 1915, New York audiences were 
loudly applauding the recitals of a 
t jj C n unknown Brazilian girl artist, 
Quiomar Novaes. This initial applause 
merely served to introduce Miss No- 
vaes to the United States. Time after 
time she was called back by groups 
u hich showed more appreciation for 
her ability than in any other nation 
„f the world. 

Twenty-six years later, as her con- 
iribution to the maintenance of close 
relationship between the musicians of 
South America and North America, 
Miss Novaes authorized Columbia Con- 
certs Corporation to extend her invi- 
tation to a young pianist who should 
tour South America. Ten contestants 
competed for the honor before a not- 
able group of judges. From these ten, 
all artists, Joseph Battista was chos- 
en to serve as a musical emissary to 
the southern nations. 

For two months last summer Bat- 
tista toured Brazil, playing at col- 
leges, at schools of music, over the air 
and at private recitals. His first con- 
cert at Rio de Janeiro where he play- 
ed before a full house received the ac- 
claim of the local critics. The news- 
, paper, Diario de Noticias, reported, 
"Battista triumphed completely in his 
first appearance on a Brazilian stage." 
The article continued, "Coming to 
Brazil as a representative of the 
young people of America, vibrant, 
idealistic, industrious and confident, 
he has honorably accomplished the 
mission that was confided in him." 

Before the ink dried on the an- 
nouncements of Battista's successful 
mission, a step was taken in the Uni- 
ted States to continue the exchange 
°f artists. Columbia Concerts Cor- 
poration delegated to Guiomar Novaes 
an d her husband the responsibility of 
electing in any manner they chose an 
ambassador of the piano to be sent to 
tn e United States. Here he would play 
le citals in New York and several oth- 
er large cities and would make at 
'east one appearance with a major 
Aphony orchestra.

nated as the College Fellowship 
Group. The discussion of this gather- 
ing is headed by one of the members 
of the College faculty. The topics for 
discussion and the presiding leaders 
were chosen by a committee of college 
students, assisted by President Clyde 
A. Lynch and the church pastor. 

The topics and leaders are: April 
12, The Christian in a World of War, 
Dr. P. A. W. Wallace, leader; April 
19, The Church and the Post-War 
World, Dr. Clyde S. Stine; April 26,

ing With Others, Dr. L. G. Bailey; 
May 3, Racial Prejudice or The Chris- 
tian Attitude Toward Minority 
Groups, Dr. Lena Lietzau; May 10, 
Preparing to Build a Christian Home, 
Dr. V. Earl Light; May 17, Religion 
in a World of Science, Dr. S. H. Der 
ickson; and May 24, The Problem of 
Right and Wrong or How May I Know 
What h Right and Wrong?, Dr. H. H. 



Joseph Battista, Professor of Pi- 
ano in the Conservatory of Music, 
will present a faculty recital on 
Monday evening, May 18, at 8:15

Personality of the Week 

By Louise Keller 

Miss Henderson, upon whose activi- 
ties the May Day fete pivots, is a per- 
sonality whose presence on campus is 
indeed beneficial. Most of us know her 
as an energetic worker, a good sport 
and a sympathetic teacher. Since she 
is associated with Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege chiefly as a teacher, we of the 
student body are acquainted with her 
only as such. But Miss Henderson is 
a far broader character than we real- 
ize, for only a broad person would 
fill the position she holds as she does. 

Born in a small Ohio town, Marys- 
ville by name, Miss Henderson came 
into a family of doctors, for her fa- 
ther, grandfather, and uncle all fol- 
lowed the medical profession. She is 
able to remember very little of her 
father, as he died when she was only 
five years of age. Her years in public 
school were spent in Marysville, ex- 
cept for one, during which she attend- 
ed school in California. Miss Hen- 
derson, who was christened Esther 
Marie Henderson, tells us that she was 
a typical tomboy, spending her leisure 
time climbing trees, flying kites, shoot- 
ing marbles and following almost any 
mentionable un-little-girlish pursuits. 
Although she drove her mother al- 
most frantic with some of her boyish 
escapades, she was championed by a 
broadminded grandmother, and so, 
continued her hoydenish ways.

Samson And Delilah 

College Orchestra and Chorus Close Festival 

Band and Glee Club Perform Thursday 

The tenth annual Lebanon Valley College Music Festival reached its 
climax Friday night, April 24, before an S. R. O. house in Ei^gle Hall with 
the presentation of Saint Saens' SAMSON AND DELILAH under the baton 
of Professor Edward P. Rutledge. The College Orchestra with Professor R. 
Porter Campbell at the organ accompanied, with Professor Frederic K. 
Miller narrating. 

Saint Saens at his best. The libretto 
is Biblical and at the premier of the 
opera, the text met with much criti- 
to factional disturbances 
which divided Paris at that time, a 
result of the then revolutionary mus- 
ical ideas of Richard Wagner. At 
this point in his career, Saint Saens 
was classified as a radical among his 
musical associates.

In the Music Festival performance, 
the Lebanon Valley College Chorus 
handled the choral passages. Mild- 
red Gangwer, graduate of '39 appear- 
ed in the role of Delilah. This was 
her third oratorical appearance on 
the L. V. C. campus. Since gradua- 
tion Miss Gangwer has served in the 
capacity of supervisor of music in 
the Paulsboro, New Jersey, schools. 

Myron Taylor, of the Conservatory 
of Music faculty sang the role of 
Samson. Mr. Taylor studied abroad 
and in America. He has also sung 
leading tenor roles with the New 
York Opera Comique, Russian Opera 
Company, Philadelphia Civic Opera 
Company, and the Metropolitan Op- 
era Company in its popular season. 

Hugh Thompson, graduate of the 
Julliard School of Music, sang the 
High Priest of Dagon. Mr. Thomp- 
son has appeared in leading baritone 
roles with the Chautauqua Opera 
Company, Chicago Civic Opera Com- 
pany and the Worcester Festivals. He 
has also sung with the Columbia, 
Princeton, Rutgers, and Yale Univer-

annual competitive scholarship exami- 
nations. Music competition began to- 
day in Engle Hall at 1:00 P. M. Aca- 
demic tests will be presented tomor- 
row morning beginning at 8:00 A. M. 

All contestants are urged to check 
their hats and coats in the check room 
at the head of the stairs in Engle Hall 
immediately upon arrival. Registra- 
tion for contestants will be conducted 
between 7:30 and 7:55 in Room 2 of 
Engle Hall. All contestants should be 
in their respective seats in the chapel 
by 7:55, prepared for the exams at 
8:00 A. M. 

At 9:15, following the first exams, 
a group picture will be taken on the 
front steps of Engle Hall. At 9:30 
the contestant will return to the cha- 
pel. At 9:40, all but the Conservatory 
contestants who have not yet audi-

Miami University, where she acquired 
her bachelor's degree with — you may 
be surprised to learn — home econom- 
ics as her major and science as her 
minor. The first position she held was 
one in which she taught physical ed- 
ucation and did cafeteria work. This 
taste of work in the field of physical 
education prompted Miss Henderson 
to go to Columbia University where 
she obtained her master's degree in 
health and physical education. 

Since that time she has gained ex- 
perience in teaching and supervising 
physical education in all grades of 
public school, and has been in college 
work for fifteen years. She says that 
she loves her job and feels that any- 
one who doesn't enjoy his work 
shouldn't be doing it. In her years at 
Lebanon Valley, she is responsible for 
the organization of the Women's Ath- 
letic Association, one of the most de- 
sirous campus clubs. 

Miss Henderson states that her 
hobby is simply play — all kinds of it; 
play is her vocatian as well as her 
avocation. In addition to play, she has 
always loved travel, and has done 
quite a bit of it. Although she has 
never been abroad, there is only a 
small section in the northwestern part 
of our own country that she has not 
yet visited. In her rovings, she has 
discovered that generally she prefers 
the South to West, but has a weak-

Cuff-less Trousers 

First rate cleaners will no longer 
find profit in the slogan, "We even 
clean out the pants cuffs." Or, in the 
words of the poet>— "Gone are the 
cuffs which my pants were wont to 
have." All this started rolling on 
Apr. 1, when clothing stores were pro- 
hibited by the government to put 
cuffs on men's trousers containing any 
percentage of wool. Tailors may put 
cuffs on trousers until May 1, and tail- 
or-made suits will have cuffs until 
June 1. After that time it will be the 
plight of all to wear trousers sans 

By this order, the government is 
hoping to save enough wool to make 
from 250,000 to 300,000 more men's 
suits. We have a sneaking suspicion, 
however, that since women have gone 
all-out for slacks, the men will never 
have the privilege of crawling into 
said suits. 

Some gents have put up a pretty 
lively howl about this new regulation 
because men are by nature conserva- 
tive in their style changes. Clothing 
merchants were almost crushed by 
business the last day before the ban 
went into effect. Lots of men are now 
buying trousers and putting the cuffs 
on themselves. (The casual observer 
might gather that there was a ban on 
suspenders rather than non-essentials 
such as cuffs.) This all seems utterly 
foolish in the light that nobody else 
will be wearing cuffs, and trousers 
with them will be out of style. I don't 
think that anybody will have his cuffs 
taken off of his present trousers, but 
there won't be any point in insisting 
on the old dirt-catchers from now on. 

It's not without a bit of regret that 
your columnist notes the passing of 
this pillar in our style institution. 
Many young swains found cuffs quite 
useful as ash receptacles in the home 
of a short-sighted host. Manj^s the 
time your columnist dropped a coin 
which his trouser cuff caught neatly 
without fuss or fray. After a walk 
in the out-of-doors, the hiker could 
make a survey of the various rock 
strata over which he passed by merely 
examining the contents of that same 
upward fold at the nether end of the 
trouser leg. Then, of course, the cuff 
did help the trouser keep its shape 

All these remarks would make it 
appear that we shall suffer no end of 
inconvenience from this day hence. 
However, we should receive encour- 
agement in remembering that the 
English have managed to survive 
without pants cuffs for some time al- 
ready. The regulation is from our 
government, and is deemed best in the 
present war emergency. It is our pa- 
triotic duty to accept the regulation 
without a murmur. In fact, we should 
be willing to wear short pants if it 
will help "crush the Axis."

shop, and ran into everyone else and her mother, too. I got a new dress 
and everything else I've needed for months — and everyone else seemed to 
be doing the same thing! 

We made it back in time for the two one-act plays the drama classes 
put on. They< were very amusing — but we still can't figure out if it was to 
be or not to be that Jack Pruyn fell in the door That was in "GRAND- 
FATHER'S CHAIR," and the other play was "LADIES ALONE." If you 
had been here you could have seen them too, because Herbie Altman was 
there, and if he could get in, you could too 

After the plays we lazed around until the banquet at 5 :30. The dining 
hall was decorated with flowers and candles and flower boxes and flower 
pots until it didn't look like the dining hall at all. The favors had sand 
in with the flowers, and we got that in the food and on the tables and on 
the floor and — well, all over the place, including in our beds that night. 
But it was a nice banquet, and Mrs. Black's speech was really a master- 
piece! It was mostly about the war and our place in it. The rest of the 
program was our own singing, some songs by Peg Martin, and a reading- by 
Betty Minnich — and Pete Geyer presented her cabinet and the new Presi- 
dent, Marian Kreider. 

That night we hit Lebanon again — and again saw everyone we knew 
at the movies. South Hall and their mothers took up a whole bus coming 
home! Kintzel, Zandel, and Hoffman and* their mothers visited the U. S. 
O. and some of the soldiers asked the mothers if they could dance with their 
daughters, or were those soldiers they were with their steadies!! And on the 
streets — would you believe it! — It was the MOTHERS that were whistled 
at! But then, everyone thought that some were sisters — especially the Ger- 
nerts and the Kintzels. 

Well, it was the floor again that night.— And I was thinking of all 
those empty beds over in the Men's Dorm, while ours were overflowing. Now 
why can't we put some of the mothers — or daughters — or BOTH — over there 
— because you know as well as I that practically all the men vanish over that 
week-end Just a thought 

Sunday we went to Sunday School and Church, and my ma thinks Mrs. 
Williams is super super. She really is, too. In the afternoon we chatted 
and went to the loveliest tea at Lynch's. But when our mothers got together 
and started telling all their wild tales, we just didn't have a chance! But 
at least, what my ma said was about HER, not me, thank goodness, like 
Caroline's mother telling Butch Wilkialis all about Caroline's old boyfriends 

Oh — did I tell you how Fifi's mother kept confusing Ben with Kubie 

and getting into complications! 

The weather was still perfect, so we took advantage of it to walk out 
to Kreider's. Our mothers were thrilled with the beauty of the place — 
and I believe they can see now why we'd rather walk than study in this

Marital News 

It was announced this week that 
August Herman and Josephine Ernst, 
graduates of Lebanon Valley in '40 
and '41 respectively, were married in 
the Memorial United Brethren Church, 
Washington, D. C, on the afternoon 
of April 25. The bride's father, Rev. 
Dr. I. S. Ernst, pastor of the church, 

Miss Ernst was attired in an aqua 
dress with matching hat and cham- 
pagne accessories, and wore a corsage 
of white rosebuds. She majored in 
business administration while at Leb- 
anon Valley, and was employed at the 
National Headquarters of the Selec- 
tive Service System in Washington. 

Mr. Herman is from Minersville, 
Pa., and was prominent in football at 
Lebanon Valley. He received his com- 
mission in the Air Corps in May, 1941, 
on the completion of the course of 
training at Maxwell Field, Montgom- 
ery, Alabama. Lt. Herman is sta- 
tioned at Duncan Field, San Antonio, 
Texas, where the couple will live after 
May 5. 

On April 18, Bradford Long, of 
Thorndale, Pa., a graduate of L. V. 
C. in 1941, married La Verne Fitch, of 
Schuylkill Haven, Pa., in the Thorn- 
dale Methodist Church. Long was a 
ministerial student while on campus, 
and at present is attending Drew The- 
ological Seminary in Madison, New 


Well, that covers about everything but the parting — and it was a won- 
derful week-end. And Monday morning when I walked out of chapel, the 
guy with me said "Well, now all the mothers are gone, and you girls can 

act natural again." Imagine!!! 

See you soon - — - -

was held in the midst of Spanish

seems that the cokes were really peace 
offerings, for in some manner or other 
the fellows had fallen into the bad 
graces of the rest of the class. What- 
ever the cause — I think that "pause 
for refreshment" is a splendid idea, 
and one that could be developed quite 
extensively to the enjoyment of us all

D* J. Cowling 
Enters L. V* C. 
Hall of Fame 

In last week's issue of Time mag a . 
zine (April 20, 1942) there appeared 
an article with accompanying pictu le 
under the section entitled Education 
which was of very special interest to 
the faculty and students of Lebanon 
Valley College. It concerned one Don. 
aid John Cowling who graduated from 
this institution in 1902, and who has 
suddenly become the most distinguish- 
ed alumnus of which L. V. C. can 

The reason for Donald John Cow. 
ling's sudden burst into print is expli. 
citly unfolded in Time's article, ft 
seems that Mr. Cowling is president 
of Carleton College, a small coeduca- 
tional school in Minnesota. During 
the 32 years that he has been presi- 
dent of Carleton, he has increased its 
wealth to the point that it now has 
nearly $8,000,000 in endowment and 
plant. As Time puts it: "In a region 
where State universities predominate, 
Carleton (cost: $850) is considered a 
rich boys' and girls' college, but Presi- 
dent Cowling tolerates no swank. His 
students are forbidden cars, have no 
fraternities or sororities, and devote 
themselves to such simple amusements 
as blanket parties in the campus park, 
Freshmen wear little green caps 
(boys) or green mittens (girls). 

Carleton was the first college to es- 
tablish a biography department, also 
has astronomy and international rela- 
tions departments, and boasts a facul- 
ty of which five are former college 

When war came, Cowling surveyed 
his faculty for possible military use- 
fulness. There was an astronomer who 
turned out to be one of the foremost 
U. S. experts in celestial navigation; 
a geographer who is a top-notch map 
man and navigator and who was sec- 
ond in command of Admiral Byrd's 
first Antarctic Expedition; a physic- 
ist who is a radio expert and who was 
an Army Signal Corps major in World 
War I ; a botanist who was an aerial 
photographer in that war; and the 
dean who was a colonel on General 
Pershing's staff. 

President Cowling sent this record 
to Washington. Washington was im- 
pressed, and agreed to let Cowling's 
experts set up an officers' corps, to 
build an airfield near Carleton's cam- 
pus, and to supervise instruction, so 
that Carleton students can receive avi- 
ation training on campus while they 
continue their education. 

Carleton has become the first £ 
lege in the U. S. to have a student fly- 
ing corps in which students can 
their military wings. Some 300 o

ty[an About Sports] 

By Ges \ 
yf e \l mates, this is your newsboy's 
first attempt at writing 'em up for 


column. But with no further sal- 

j S let's see what's doing in sports. 
Since the last publication, the Val- 
ley nine made their debut for the 1942 
season, and lads, what a beginning! 
They more than settled for that, not 
^ fortunate, gathering of the pre- 
vious year. With every player on the 
team knocking the percimmon around 
f r at least one hit, one can find no 
,oom to complain. If Staley and Zerbe 
e an continue to wield that willow in 
like manner for all of the innings yet 
to be played this spring, the future 
should give us little concern. 

Old Ges is taking the stand in be- 
half of the boys who wear the blue 
8n <j white on the chalked courts. They 
lost their first matches to a couple of 
seasoned teams, teams representing 
schools that take the game seriously. 
Since they are playing without the 
services of a tutor and with very poor 
practice courts, plus the fact that the 
team has only two holdovers from last 
year, the tennis sextet should not have 
to dodge any stones which we, the gal- 
lery, might unthinkingly throw in 
their direction. 

At Moravian the diamondmen fin- 
ished one run short. It was a hard 
one to lose. This column salutes Dick 
Seiverling for a neat job of serving 
'em up, and for his almost successful 
attempt at stopping the mighty Mora- 
vian men. In this humble scribe's opin- 
ion there is a time to hit and a time 
not to miss. One of those times is 
when the bases are loaded and outs 
to go. Having such a situation oc- 
cur twice in one game necessitates 
remedial measures. 

Speaking of baseball, it is usually 
the custom for the compilers of this 
corner to go out on a limb and chose 
their selections for the National and 
American League penants. Your news- 
wy will refrain from such a predic- 
tion as in his opinion the Yankees and 
the Dodgers are sure bets no matter 
ho * you look at it. 

While taking a hurried glance at 
the courts the other day, your report- 
er noticed that two of the contenders 
^ 0r tennis berths were being given a 
few Pointers by two petticoats on how 
to Play the game in question. The 
nat nes of the two nymphs cannot be 
^Iged, but their initials are Stabley 
and Wilt.

Dutchmen Lose 
In Close Game 
To Moravian 

The L. V. C. tossers lost a close de- 
cision to Moravian with the final 
score ending at 6-5. The Moravian 
College Greyhounds went into the 
last half of the ninth with the score 
tied at 5-all and Levy cracked out a 
single, raced to third on an overthrow 
and ran home on an easy lofter to the 
outfield to protect his team's record 
of six consecutive games. 

The well known "Casey at the bat" 
was pulled on two occasions when the 
Dutchmen had the bases loaded but 
failed to score. 

Dick Seiverling took care of the 
mound chores for the full nine innings 
and showed plenty of ability when he 
allowed only seven hits against the 
Moravian powerhouse. The Morav 
ian hurler, Wisznowski, was in 
trouble several times through errors 
by his mates and six boots were 
chalked up against the Greyhounds 
C. Miller's triple was the feature hit 
for his team.

Softball and Tennis 

With spring comes Softball and ten- 
nis for the girls interested in sports 
here at Lebanon Valley College. Prac- 
tically every day finds quite a few of 
the girls at the hockey field playing 
softball. Among the regulars are 
"Fifi" Fisher, "Pete" Geyer, and 
"Bobby" Herr. Last Saturday morn- 
ing a game was played for the enter- 
tainment of the mothers by the "Leba- 
non Valley Yanks" and the "Red 
Hots." The "Red Hots," captained by 
Martha Wilt, came across to trim 
Kintzel's "Lebanon Valley Yanks" 17- 
7. Pitchers Haverstock, Herr, and 
Kintzel proved their ability on the 
mound as well as in the batter's box. 
Many newcomers including Stoneci- 
pher, Snell, Ehrlich, and Shoop con- 
tributed greatly to their respective 

Jane Stabley, tennis leader, is anx- 
ious to have the girls interested in 
tennis appear on the courts. In spite 
of gasoline rationing, matches are to 
be scheduled with Albright and Her- 
shey Junior College in the near fu- 
ture. Among the veterans are "Jyni" 
Bernhard, "Nicky" Witmeyer, and 
Jane Stabley. In order to have a suc- 
cessful season we need more coopera- 
tion from tennis-minded girls. Come 
to the tennis courts and try your 

W. A. A. Hike 

Last Monday, April 20, the girls 
who played varsity and interclass bas- 
ketball enjoyed one of those super W. 
A. A. hikes. Some of the girls left 
South Hall around 4:30, and hiked to 
a suitable spot near Millard's quarry. 
Miss Henderson and a few late-com- 
ers arrived at 5:30. She was literally 
stampeded by the hungry athletes. Af- 
ter a grand lunch some of the more 
ambitious girls hiked back to Ann- 
ville, while others rode. We were all 
glad that "Nicky" Witmeyer waited 
until after the hike to throw away the 
chili. It is known that the W. A. A. 
sponsors first-rate activities for the 
girls on campus. In order that this 
oi'ganization may continue to function 
as it has in the past, we urge all W. 
A. A. members to please pay their 

Wilson Plays Host 
To Campus Archers 

On Saturday, April 18, at Wilson 
College, Chambersburg, an archery 
meet was held to which Lebanon Val- 
ley College archers were invited. Five 
fellows, John Light, George Huff, 
John Hampton, Charles Shelley and 
Franklin Patschke, and three girls, 
Mary Ellen Klopp, "Patty" Bartels, 
and Louise Keller were able to attend. 

After registration, a Junior Colum- 
bia Round was shot. Instead of com- 
peting as school against school, each 
individual was given a team number, 
and each team of four used one tar- 
get. This arrangement eliminated any 
ill feelings of rivalry and yet encour- 
aged the best shooting. In this event, 
Light and Shelley came out seventh 
and eighth respectively out of ap- 
proximately 120 competitors. 

The afternoon offered three events 
— archery golf, clout shoot, and a rov- 
ing hunt. Patschke, Light, and Bar- 
tels entered the archery golf, but as 
they were late in starting, they did 
not complete their round. The results 
of the clout shoot, in which Klopp, 
Keller, and Hampton participated, 
were not posted. In the roving hunt, 
however, Shelley and Light came out 
first and second respectively. 

When the crowd returned from the 
various events, the Women's National 
Champion 1940-1941, Ann Weber, did 
some demonstration shooting in which 
certain points of technique were ob- 
served. She then did flight shooting, 
both in regular form and free style. 
The Bloomfield, New Jersey, high 
school is among top-ranking high 
schools in the field of archery. Miss 
Russell, the director there, brought 
her four best archers, and they did 
some demonstrations, shooting phe- 
nomenally high scores. 

The clinic which Miss Henderson 
attended was such that it afforded 
the best instruction for teachers. The 
clinic, along with the films that were 
shown, served to remind participants 
of the many intricacies that must be 
observed in shooting. The day was a 
great deal of fun and quite beneficial 
to all who attended. 

Tennis and Baseball 
Fill May Day Sports Bill 

On the sports program planned for 
May Day is a tennis match with Eliz- 
abethtown College and a baseball 
game with Drexel Institute of Tech- 

At 9:30 A. M. the L. V. C. netmen 
will engage in their second match of 
the season to try to break into the 
winning column after suffering a de- 
feat at the hands of Dickinson on 
Saturday. Elizabethtown has quite a 
few holdovers and promises keen 
competition for the local boys. 

The Drexel nine comes to Annville 
riding on the crest of a 4-3 victory 
over the strong University of Dela- 
ware Tuesday and hopes to continue 
its string of victories at the Blue and 
White's expense. All but four regu- 
lars have returned this year to the 
Dragon lineup including an oversup- 
ply of veteran twirlers. 

The Valleyites are prepared to put 
up a stiff battle before the May Day 
crowd in the quest of their second tri- 
umph. From a squad of seven last- 
year men and promising freshmen 
candidates, Coach "Mike" Intrieri is 
still experimenting at finding the bat- 
ting order in which he combines the 
most offensive and defensive power. 

Matala Proves 
Steady Hurler 
For Ball Club 

Paced by Captain Staley, John Zer- 
be, and "Ironman" Matala, the Flying 
Dutchmen inaugurated the '42 base- 
ball season with a 10-7 victory over 
Elizabethtown College last week. Sta- 
ley led the hitters with two singles, a 
double, and a triple. Zerbe clouted a 
two-run round-tripper in the fourth, 
and Matala pitching his first game 
allowed the home team but seven scat- 
tered hits, proving especially effective 
in the pinches, leaving 10 runners 
stranded on the bags. 

After two scoreless innings, the 
Valley broke the ice by pounding 
across three runs. Zerbe reached sec- 
ond on a two-base error to start the 
rally. He crossed the plate on Mata- 
la's single. Matala moved around to 
third on Smith's hit and both runners 
scored on Fake's double. In the next 
inning, Zerbe hit his home run scoring 
C. Miller who had walked, ahead of 

In the last of the fourth E'town 
broke loose with two runs on a double, 
a walk, and an error. Again in the 
fifth the home team scored on an er- 
ror and a hit. This run put the score 
at 5-3 in favor of the visitors. 

Beckner's single in the seventh 
knocked across Staley who had tripled 
to left-center field, and Withers who 
had walked and stolen second. 

E'town in their half of the inning 
put together a walk, a hit on error, 
and single by Delaney the shortstop, 
who with three singles led the visit- 
ors, to score two runs. 

With one out in the eighth, Smith 
reached first on an error. Staley's 
fourth hit, a double, scored Smith. 
Ben Wasilewski then came through

Capital to Campus 

WASHINGTON— In case you 
haven't noticed by this time, all col- 
lege and university students are elig- 
ible for rationing books and their half- 
pound of sugar per week whether they 
live "on campus" or at home. It may 
be a good idea to get a book because 
there is likely to be further ration- 
ing of other products. However, it 
would be a good gesture to pass up 
purchases of sugar if you don't need 
it. "Reach for a bond, instead of a 
sweet!" Perhaps we've a campaign 

Alien students in American colleges 
"absolutely do not" have to register 
for selective service. All they must 
do is prove to local draft boards that 
their non-resident status is bona fide. 

Selective Service officials have 
been compelled to reiterate the ex- 
emption of "non-resident aliens" be- 
cause of rumors floating about that 
alien students are subject to military 

The majority of these students are 
citizens of sister American republics, 
here on scholarships granted by their 
home governments or Uncle Sam. 

There is, however, nothing to pro- 
hibit their volunteering for military 
service. That, too, is done through 
the local draft board which turns over 
their qualifications and personal his- 
tories to the War Department for fin- 
al OK.

Southern Atmosphere 

(Continued from Page 1) 

Cotton Pickers leave their work to 
join the fun. A wagon load of Pick- 
anninies have their fling. The Riders 
returning from their chase also par- 
ticipate in the celebration and pay 
their homage to the Queen of May. 

Not unwanted but improper is the 
intrusion of Sparkie the Mare. Even 
John Light and Herbert Altman need 
their fun. But here the Dance of Noon 
tolls out the feeding hour. The Cooks 
and Waiters are seen dancing 'round 
a barbecuing pig tended by Elizabeth 

Following the barbecue the Band 
entertains the "lazin"' guests. At 
ie concert's dose a Croquet Game 
and May Pole Dance give chase to 
the near-siesta atmosphere of the 
post-meal hour. Not to be outdone, 
the Southern Gentlemen flash their 
xbres in a stately demonstration for 
he benefit of their Ladies. Having 
hus impressed their partners, the 
-itlemen extend "an invitation to p 
waltz" which is everyone's "delight." 

The Queen has seen enough. She 
leads her Court and all plantation 
guests away. Her move is timely

scored Staley from second. The visit-

Matala's worst inning was the 
eighth when he handed out four bases 
on balls, but escaped with only one 
run scored against him. 

C. Miller walked with one away in 
the ninth. On an infield out and an 
error by the second baseman, he tal-

the listener that feeling of massive 
power so prevalent in Beethoven's 
work. It is his final piano concerto 
thus representing the consummation 
of his genius in this particular type 
of composition. 

The first movement of the concerto, 
though simple in thematic form, is 
handled in such a way as to provide 
a feeling of infinite space and power. 
The second and shortest movement is 
more quiet providing a lull of a subtly 
soporific quality. The second and third 
movements blend into one another to 
provide a masterful transition from 
the quiet theme to one that, like the 
first movement, is expressive of space 
and power. It is notable to mention 
that Beethoven, unlike Rachmaninoff, 
gives the orchestra a chance to dis- 
play its ability; it is given a gener- 
ous part of every movement providing 
a balanced blend between orchestra 
and piano that no other composer save 
Robert Schumann has been able to 

One of the world's greatest inter- 
preters of Beethoven is combined with 
America's oldest symphony orchestra 
to give this work the sort of rendition 
that it deserves. The true artistry of

harmonic Orchestra are coupled to

To quote directly, she is "not keen

likes travel books and biographies bet

The fourteen points of the Atlantic 
Charter were reviewed and probable 
peace terms applicable to an allied vic-

more lenient peace terms in regard to 
the Axis.

Personality Of The Week 

By John Hampton 

La Vie's representative spent a 
pleasant half hour one afternoon this 
week interviewing Dr. Clyde Stine, 
Professor of Public Speaking and Ed- 

During this short time Dr. Stine's 
diminutive office resembled the pro- 
verbial beehive. Simultaneously, he 
checked his rollbook, dictated a memo 
to his stenographer, and told the in- 
terviewer details about a new book 
written by himself and several asso- 

Dr. Stine was born at Pinegrove, 
Pa., "sometime after the Civil War." 
It was in this Pennsylvania German 
community that he received his pub- 
lic school education and first became 
interested in the Pennsylvania Ger- 
mans as a distinctive thread in the 
fabric of American culture. 

For a year after graduation from 
high school he taught at a "little red 
school house" near his home 
This introduction to teaching as 
profession inoculated him with 
desire to proceed farther in the field 
of education. 

He worked for and obtained his de- 
cree of Bachelor of Arts in English 
at Cornell University. After teaching 
high school for three years he return- 
ed to Cornell again, this time for his 


Masters degree in Public Speaking 
and later his degree of Doctor of Phil 
osophy in Education. While at Cor- 
nell he served as an instructor in 
Public Speaking and Educational Psy- 

Dr. Stine first became a full time 


member of the Lebanon Valley Col 
lege faculty in 1939 when he began 
serving as associate professor of ed 
ucation and professor of public speak- 
ing. His modern approach to the 
problems of teaching and his person-

A Request 

• • • 

Since pleasant weather seems to 
have come to stay, most of the stu- 
dents are responding by pursuing as 
many outdoor activities as possible. 
Even the work that ordinarily is done 
indoors finds its way out to bask in 
warm sun. All this is indeed lovely, 
but Nature has failed to provide cer- 
tain articles of furniture that would 
facilitate outdoor study — for example, 
tables and benches. 

Previous springs on campus were 
marked by the appearance of benches 
and tables placed at convenient spots. 
These bits of furniture proved an in- 
valuable aid to outdoor book-crackers. 
Then, too, the day students who en- 
joy lunching outdoors must not be for- 
gotten. To sit on the ground and con- 
tend with ants is "lots o' fun" for an 
occasional picnic, but to fight off an 
invasion of insects daily is quite an- 
other tale. Herein lies another argu- 
ment favoring the setting up of cam- 
pus furniture. 

Such a request is not entirely un- 
reasonable, because it's been done be- 
fore. Only last spring furniture such 
as was suggested was in evidence. 
Where is it now? Did the termites 
have a banquet, or is it being used for 
defense? If anyone can offer a satis- 
factory reply, why not do so by pro- 
ducing material evidence, and make 
the "outdoorsy" students happy once 
more ! 

# What Price 
Education? . . . 

Lebanon Valley College will soon 
have completed its first semester un- 
der the present war-time set-up. It 
might be well to take stock. The new 
schedude has decided advantages for 
the young men hoping to complete 
their college education before entering 
the service of their country. On the 
other hand there is room for improve- 

Take for instance the system of ex- 
aminations. In order to save time the 
students have been submitting them- 
selves to numerous quizzes and tests. 
If all the professors would follow the 
example of one or two of their num- 
ber who at the beginning of the se- 
mester laid down (they have also ad- 
hered to it) a schedude of exams, the 
elimination of final exams would be 
excellent. As it is exams have become 
a digression from routine study sched- 
uled at the convenience of the profes- 
sors. The next best step would be to 

La Vie Goes To 
The Junior Prom 

By Katy Koed 

Soft lights and sweet music punctu- 
ated with an occasional exclamation 
to the tune of "Deep In the Heart of 
Texas" provided the backdrop for the 
staging of the annual Junior prom at 
Hershey Park Ballroom. The music 
was provided by Howard Gale's or- 
chestra which, incidentally, filled a 
week's engagement on the Steel Pier 
at Atlantic City. The criticisms of the 
music were few and far between, his 
arrangements were sweet to the ears, 
and his rhythm was smooth as the 
floor. If that means nothing to you, 
see Hummel and Graybill — they 
struck up a close acquaintance with 
the floor. 

While the dance programs followed 
tradition as far as color scheme is 
concerned, the white pigskin cover 
with the blue and silver seal was in- 
deed unique. By the time the fifth 
dance came around, Prof. Carmean 
and Prom Leader Ebersole had their 
heads together and the grand march 
seemed to be the result of the confer- 
ence. Congratulations are in order 
for the skilful manner in which Wal- 
ter and Janet Schopf led the line 
through a maze of intricate forma- 
tions. Thanks, too, are in order for 
Prof. Carmean 's assistance in the 
promenade. Incidentally, Mr. Gale, 
who may be considered an authority 
on the matter, made a statement to 
the effect that this was among the 
nicest promenades that he has been 
privileged to observe. 

Just as the promenade was the out- 
standing feature of the dance before 
intermission, La Conga was the high 
point of the latter half of the affair. 
Ginnie Kent and her escort did a com- 
mendable job of leading the dance; 
the crowd, too, must be commended 
for the spirit of fun displayed in en- 
tering the event. In spite of the rath- 
er damp weather, the spirit was not 
lacking. The class of '43 deserves a 
hearty handshake for its finale to a 
successful year. 

Two Nights Devoted 
To Duo-Piano Recitals 

A series of two-piano recitals of 
concertos will be conducted in Engle 
Hall on Thursday and Friday, May 21 
and 22. 

Appearing in recital will be Miriam 
Tippery accompanied by Jeanne Wal- 
ler; Betty Shillot accompanied by 
Merl Freeland; Irma Sholley accom- 
panied by Phyllis Deitzler; Miriam 
Carper accompanied by Mrs. Bender;

would be determined by logical breaks 
in each individual subject. Otherwise 
it would be advisable to return to the 
pre-war exam schedule with all its 

On the other hand, extra-curricular 
activities have not decreased in pro- 
portion to the increased momentum 
of the educational set-up. The student 
body must share in the blame for they 
have constantly agitated for the main- 
tenance of pre-war social activities. 
Man needs recreation, especially now. 
However, he needs to balance his 
schedule of work and play. Let the 
faculty and the students unite to de- 
crease — not eliminate entirely — the 
overburden of extra-curricular activi-

| From The Wings] 

The dramatic season at L. V. q 
officially closed on May Day Eve with 
Philo-Clio's production of Sidney 
Howard's "The Late Christopher 
Bean." And, by the comments that 
were voiced afterwards, the closing 
seems to have been an auspicious one 

However, your columnist still f ee l s 
as he did on leaving Engle Hall, that 
this play did not receive the share of 
justice that it deserved. For "Chris- 
topher Bean" was one of the best 
plays ever to be chosen for production 
on the local boards. But, as it hap. 
pened, it came at an inopportune time 
of the year, and many uncontrollable 
factors combined to detract from the 
polished production it could have been 

Louise Keller copped top acting hon- 
ors for her simple and sincere por- 
trayal of Abby, about whom the play 
centered. Managing to stay in char- 
acter throughout the evening was a 
real test of her stage ability. Dennis 
Sherk as the distinguished Davenport 
seemed the most professional of the 
whole cast, and proved his versatility 
as a veteran of the Valley stage in at- 
tempting this minor role. To Virginia 
Kent goes the plaque as the dramatic 
discovery of the year for her lively in- 
terpretation of Susan. Her appear- 
ances on stage served to brighten the 
play immeasurably. Edward McFer- 
ren had a heavy role to enact and was 
burdened by having to rely on prompt- 
ing, but for the most part his per- 
formance was enjoyable. Robert 
Streepy and Mary Mehaffey were con- 
vincing in supporting roles. 

As this is the last issue of LA VIE 
until next year, the time seems apro- 
pos for taking a backward glance at 
the '41-'42 dramatic season and for 
making an evaluation of just what L. 
V. C. Thespians have accomplished in 
the past year. So, your columnist here- 
by places himself on the proverbial 
limb and proffers his selections for 
the "bests" of the year. The best play 
of the season in regards to casting, 
direction, set, and individual perform- 
ances was "Through the Night" . • • 
best performance by an actress — Bet- 
ty Minnich as Maggie in "What Every 
Woman Knows" . . . best performance 
by an actor — Hans Uberseder as Bun- 
ny in "Through the Night" . . . most 
outstanding performance by a sup- 
porting actress — Mary Jane Fulton as 
the Comtesse de la Briere in "What 
Every Woman Knows" . . . most out- 
standing performance by a supporting 
actor — Dennis Sherk as Davenport in 
"The Late Christopher Bean" . . • » est 
performance by a newcomer — Virgin- 
ia Kent as Susan in "The Late Chris- 
topher Bean" .... most surprising 
performance of the year — J a c o D

W. A. A. Initiation Hike 
The annual W. A. A. initiation hike 
took place Monday, May 11, at Fink's. 
The initiates dressed so as to portray 
some character in the comic strips. 
Quite a few "L'l Abners" turned out 
to make it interesting for the "Dai- 
sys." The girls left at different times, 
but none escaped being initiated on 
the way. Air-raids and gathering wood 
were quite popular. Even a few of 
the girls gathered a bouquet of vio- 
lets for Miss Henderson. After all the 
initiates arrived, each one had to pre- 
sent a skit portraying the character 
they were representing. It seems there 
is a lot of acting ability going to 
waste. After getting rid of a lot of 
delicious food, the girls started back 
to Annville. This hike was somewhat 
briefer than others, but just as full 
of fun. 

E-town Defeats L. V. C. at Softball 
On Tuesday afternoon the girl's 
softball team traveled to Elizabeth- 
town to play their first game with an 
outside college. The team proved it- 
self above the expected and gave the 
E-town team a good chase. Although 
losing 25-21, the girls showed that if 
given more practice, they could turn 
out a good team. Thelma Kintzel re- 
ally showed her ability as a pitcher 
and also as a home-run hitter. Helen 
Bush, "Fifi" Fisher, and "Pete" Geyer 
all proved that they too could really 
hit that ball. Ruth Haverstock and 
"Ginny" Stonecipher made splendid 
fielders. Snell, Ulmer, and Keller con- 
tributed much in their respective po- 
sitions and showed quite a future if 
they continue to play softball. The 
girls all seemed to have an enjoyable 
time playing and another game may 
be scheduled before the season is over. 

Drexel Dragons 
Defeat L.V.C. Nine 
In May Day Tilt 

May Day was marred when Frankie 
Carter pitched the Drexel Dragons to 
a 9-1 victory over the L. V. C. nine. 
Only five hits were allowed and ten 
Blue and White players fanned as the 
small right hander displayed great 
pitching talent, particularly in the 
pinches. Twice he "whiffed" the bat- 
ter for the third out with the bases 
loaded, this being the manner in 
which the game ended. 

Only in the seventh were the locals 
able to cross the platter and then 
only once as Zerbe walked, stole sec- 
ond and came home when Smith lined 
one through the shortstop. 

Zerbe and Fake led the homesters 
with two hits apiece while "Don" 
Staley collected the other Flying 
Dutchmen safety. 

Nine times was Harry Matala nick- 
ed by the Drexel bats as he twirled a 
fine brand of ball. However, some of 
his effectiveness was marred by the 
six errors committed by his team- 
mates. Harry's "twister" had the 
visitors guessing for quite a while and 
only a few of the safeties were square 
and clean base-knocks. He pitched a 
cagey game and was a victim of cir- 
cumstances under which he performed 
creditably against a team which was 
battling for its sixth win in nine 
starts this season.

Valley Nine Kicked 
By Mules, 4*1 

The Muhlenberg Mules got three 
unearned runs on Saturday, and that 
decided the game. Charlie Trinkle, 
Muhlenberg moundsman, held Leba- 
non Valley to one run as the visiting 
Mules chalked up a 4-1 victory. 

The Muhlenberg moundsman held 
the Flying Dutchmen to five well scat- 
tered hits, fanned ten and walked only 
one in turning in a beautiful pitching 
performance. Opposing Trinkle was 
Harry Matala, Blue and and White 
curver, who allowed ony seven hits 
and struck out a total of six Mules. 
He was victimized by the shoddy sup- 
port of his mates that gave the visit- 
ors those big three early unearned 
runs and what proved to be the mar- 
gin of victory. 

'Chick' Edwards, a new replacement 
in left field for the Dutchmen, got two 
hits which made him high man for the 

Lebanon Valley's one run was 
scored by hard working Matala when 
he doubled in the third and raced 
home on a timely single by George

Beriont Wins First 
In Javelin Throw 

Yes! He did it! Our own N. J. 
Freshman, "Lolly" Beriont, victori- 
ously displayed his ability at javelin 
heaving last Saturday. By garnering 
a first place and five points in the 
Middle Atlantic States Collegiate 
Championships held at Haverford, 
Pa., he accounted for L. V.'s first track 
score in twenty-some years. 

He accomplished this with a toss of 
193 feet, 51 inches, just 2 feet, 2 inch- 
es under the existing meet record. 

"Lol" was an outstanding athlete at 
Linden High School and he will long 
be remembered and honored there as 
one of Linden's great. In both 1940 
and 1941 he surpassed all rivals by 
taking the N. J. State Championship 
for Group 3 high schools. His best 
high school mark was 189 feet, 101 

Coach Jerome Frock drove L. V. 
C.'s lone entrant to the qualifying tri- 
als Friday afternoon. Beriont made a 
gigantic throw of 204 feet in the tri- 
als, but was disqualified because one 
of his fingers crossed the foul line.

Man About Sports] 

By Ges 

Since La Vie says finis with this 
issue no more fitting copy for this 
corner could be found than a sum- 
mary of what's been cooking with the 
wearers of the Blue and White this 

On the diamond the boys have been 
breaking even. The headache at the 
beginning of the season seemed to be 
the absence of moundsmen. In this 
humble scribe's opinion the weakness 
in the team lies in the other eight 
men. In every game this season which 
was chalked up on the wrong side of 
the ledger, the loss was not due to 
poor pitching but to faulty support. 
Last week the Muhlenberg Mules trot- 
ted home with the token. They bested 
the Dutchmen score by three mark- 
ers, and yet they failed to earn any 
of those runs. In the hitting depart- 
ment the willow wielders have been 
swatting the pellet. A big part of the 
team boasts a 300 or better average 
for the season. The Valley nine still 
has four more encounters before they 
turn in their togs. On paper those 
battles are ours. Let's play ball. 

Turning our attention now to the 
tennis front we find it less embarras- 
sing to turn our back on the matter 
and get to something a bit more 

This corner wants to take this time 
to honor the unsung members of this 
year's Sporting Parade, the managers. 
Without them the show couldn't go 
on. Compliments of the season to Bill 
Reed, John Paul Hummel, Schmaltzer, 
and Flinchbaugh. 

To bring the chatter from this cor- 
ner to a close, we pass along a word 
about Charley Gelbert, the old time 
Lebanon Valley College athletic 
luminary. The Valley alumnus will 
not wear a major league uniform this 
season as so many of his old friends 
had hoped after he signed up with 
Brooklyn during the off-season. He 
was sold outright to the Montreal 
Royals of the International League 
in a deal recently disclosed by the 
Brooklyn Club. 


. . . whom LA VIE salutes in its last 
issue for outstanding athletics per- 
formed during his four years at L. V. 

Wasilewski Homers 
With One Aboard 

Behind Dick Seiverling's courag- 
eous hurling, and the big bats of Dick 
Beckner and Ben Wasilewski the L. 
V. C. tossers copped their second win 
of the '42 season from the Juniata In- 
dians, 8-7. 

Seiverling in gaining his first vic- 
tory of the season fanned seven, Beck- 
ner had four hits in as many ap- 
proaches to the plate, and Wasilew- 
ski broke out of his batting slump 
with a tremendous two-run homer in 
the sixth inning. 

The Indians scored twice in the 
second to take a 2-0 lead, but the 
Dutchmen came back to knot the 
count in the fourth when Beckner led 
off with his second hit, Don Staley 
doubled, and Zerbe chased both run- 
ners home with a solid single to cen- 

Juniata again took the lead in the 
sixth by tallying two runs on two 
singles, a hit batsman and an error. 
In the second half of the same stan- 
za, the Dutchmen went into action 
and tabulated five markers. 

Dick Beckner opened with a sharp 
single to right and raced to third on 
Staley's double. Fake, came through 
with a double in the clutch scoring 
both mates. Zerbe kept the rally 
alive with another two-bagger scor- 
ing Fake, as Juniata changed pitch- 

Zerbe was caught on the base paths 
on Miller's roller. Withers reached 
first on an error, after which Ben 
Wasilewski poled his mighty round- 
tripper scoring Withers ahead of 

Juniata gathered two more in the 
seventh, but Lebanon Valley chalked 
up one in the same frame on Smith's 
pass, Beckner's hit, and two infield 
outs. The Indians notched one more 
in the top of the ninth but failed to 
overcome their deficit as Seiverling 
bore down in the pinch. 
(Continued on Page 4, Column 1) 

E-town Avenges 

Earlier Loss 

The Elizabethtown nine stormed in- 
to the local camp yesterday afternoon 
and avenged an early season setback 
by out-scoring the Valley .diamond- 
men 10-3. The E-town boys chalked 
up only one more marker in the hit 
column than did the home town boys, 
but it was the same old story — "you 
can't win a game and 'boot' the ball 
at the same time." 

The Annville "willow wielders" col- 
lected a total of seven hits off Jackie 
Melhorn, but the visitors supported 
their freshman twirler superbly in 
the pinches to allow only three runs 
to cross the keystone plate. 

Seiverling had some difficulty in 
settling down in the first frame. In 
the interim four runs came across for 
the foreigners. After giving up two 
walks and a double, Seiverling set the 
next two men down on strikes to end 
the inning. Pitching good ball until 
the top part of the sixth he weakened 
again permitting five more tallies. 
Newbaker, L. V. port-sider, came in 
to take over the mound duties for the 
remainder of the fracas. Charlie 
showed up well in the number one po- 
sition and seemed to have the visitors 
swinging harmlessly at his deliveries. 

The Blue and White tallied their 
first run in the fifth. Seiverling 
reached first on a free ticket; Wasi- 
lewski tripled to center scoring Seiv- 
erling and romped home when Smith 
connected for a double. In the bot- 
tom half of the seventh Zerbe began 
the inning with a single to left and 
stole second scoring on Newbaker's, 
infield out.

Wallace Represents 
L.V. C. at Convention 

Dr. Paul A. W. Wallace, Professor 
of English and Director of Publicity 
at Lebanon Valley College, represent- 
ed the college at the twenty-fifth Na- 
tional Convention of American College 
Publicity Associations which was con- 
ducted from Thursday morning, May 
7, to Saturday noon, May 9, in Colum- 
bus, Ohio. 

Among the principal speakers were 
the Hon. John W. Bricker, Governor 
of Ohio; Benjamin Fine, Education 
Editor for the New York Times; Dr. 
Felix C. Held, secretary of the Col- 
lege of Commerce and Administration, 
Ohio State University; and Captain 
Smelzer of the Army Air Corps.

turned from the Java Campaign. He 
related in full detail the story of Cap- 
tain Hewitt Wheless who piloted a 
Flying Fortress on a bombing attack 
against the Japs in the Philippines. 
This daring exploit will be remember- 
ed as the one cited by the President of 
the United States in his latest report 
to the nation. 

Dr. Stokes Announces

Letters to the Editor 

Dear Ed., 

My finger's are scraped to the bone 
and my hand has become so cramped 
that I find notation anything but 
possible in my Chemistry 26. Ever 
since Tuesday morning, when I en- 
deavored to consume my soft-boiled 
eggs via the blade of a knife, I have 
been forced to resort to the tactics of 
Alley Oop in an effort to keep my 
body completely nourished. This pre- 
dicament has all been caused by some 
person of abnormal brilliance pur- 
loining the silverware from the din- 
ing hall. 

The big mystery is why they didn't 
take the knives. Perhaps they were

too keen-edged to be trusted to the 
sanctuary of someone's pockets for 
transportation to a place of conceal- 
ment. How in the world am I and my 
classmates expected to eat without 
the use of proper implements? Why 
isn't something DONE about this! 
Why isn't a posse formed to search 
the campus, find and apprehend the 
culprits? I don't care whether the 
culprit is caught or not, but won't 
someone get our silverware back? 

I have been puzzled as to where 
the stolen plunder can be. There are 
numerous possibilities but neither I 
nor my good friend "Watson" can of- 
fer anything in the way of a solution. 
Perhaps someone has placed it under 
Miss Gillespie's mattress or perhaps 

someone has dumped it in the works 
of the Ad Building clock. It jj^g 
been off a little lately. I wonder jf 
someone couldn't have slipped in be 
hind Esbenshade's back and hid it i n 
the safe before it was closed for th 

On the other hand perhaps w e 
should all forget about it and brave 
the loss as best we might; perhaps 
Eddie took it and turned it in for Na 
tional Defense. I guess we will have 
to survive without for the duration 
and then perhaps the Finance Com 
mittee will purchase us some of the 
new plastic ones.

You want to serve your country! 
Why not serve where your college 
training will do the most good? 

Under the Navy's newest plan, you can en- 
list right now. You don't have to quit college. 
You can stay in college, continue your studies 
and qualify to become a Naval Officer — on 
the sea or in the air. 

Who may qualify 

If you are between the ages of 17 and 19 
inclusive and can meet Navy physical stand- 
ards, you can enlist now as an Apprentice 
Seaman in the Naval Reserve. You will be 
in the Navy. But you may remain in college, 
taking regular college courses under your 
own professors. Your studies will emphasize 
mathematics, physics and physical training. 

After you have successfully completed 1^ 
calendar years of work, you will be given a 
classification test. This examination is com- 
petitive. It is designed to select the best 
men for training as Naval Officers. 

How to become an Officer 

If you qualify by this test and can meet 
the necessary physical standards, you will 
hav^your choice of two courses — each lead- 
ing to an officer's commission: 

1. You may volunteer for training as an 
Aviation Officer. In this case you will be per- 
mitted to finish at least the second calendar 
year of college work, before you are ordered 
to active duty for training to become an 

However, at any time during this two- 
year period, you may have the option to 
take immediately the prescribed examina- 
tion for Aviation Officer . . . and, if success- 
ful, be assigned for Aviation training. 
Students who fail in their college courses 
or who withdraw from college will also have 
the privilege of taking the Aviation exam- 
ination. Applicants who fail to qualify in 
this test will be ordered to active duty as 
Apprentice Seamen. 

2. Those who qualify in the classification 
test and do not volunteer for Aviation will be 

selected for training to be Deck or Engineering 
Officers. In that case, you will continue 
your college program until you receive 
your bachelor's degree, provided you main- 
tain the established university standards. 

Those whose grades are not high enough 
to qualify them for Deck or Engineering 
Officer training will be permitted to finish 
their second calendar year of college. After 
this, they will be ordered to duty as Ap- 
prentice Seamen, but because of their col- 
lege training they will have a better chance 
for rapid advancement. At any time, if a 
student should fail in his college courses, 
he may be ordered to active duty as an 
Apprentice Seaman. 

Your pay starts with active duty. 

It's a real challenge! It's a real oppor- 
tunity! Make every minute count by doing 
something about this new Navy plan today.
